This team is comprised of two groups working closely together. Actuarial Analysts use their strong statistical backgrounds and knowledge gained from actuarial exams to create high-quality predictive models. Business Analysts use specialized skills, such as Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping and competitive data analysis, to design innovative business processes.

Predictive analytics is an area of the business that’s central to the success of a property and casualty (P&C) insurance company like Economical. We work closely with other business units (personal insurance, commercial insurance, sales and distribution, underwriting, claims) to develop creative, data-driven solutions to business problems.

University students majoring in Mathematics, Actuarial Science, Economics, or Computer Science are encouraged to take their career to the next level with our team.
