MetLife’s growing Actuarial needs have given rise to over a dozen unique actuarial development programs around the world. These programs provide support to help our actuaries become qualified through various international actuarial organizations. They also offer our actuaries additional professional development opportunities. In the spirit of operating as ONE MetLife, we’re strengthening our actuarial community and enhancing our ability to communicate with actuarial colleagues across the globe. Here’s how:

  • The MetLife Actuarial Conference in the U.S. annually hosts over 350 actuaries with many participants attending from global regions. The conference sessions address emerging issues and other areas of interest to our actuaries.
  • In 2014, MetLife held its first Americas Actuarial Conference which brought together over 60 actuaries from the US and Latin America to collaborate on projects and issues most relevant to the Americas region.
  • The Summer Presentation Series is a program of 12 live webinars/video conference presentations made by MetLife subject matter experts and provides a basic understanding of our products and key actuarial functions. This program, originally created for the U.S. summer interns, has been expanded to include participation from actuarial employees in many international regions.
