Actuaries are creative, curious and adaptable human resources and problem solvers, who need to possess different skills and knowledge to solve risk-related problems.

They are in the process of studying & appearing for the professional exams, while also garnering work experience & skills in an entry-level Actuary job. From analyzing the financial costs of risk and uncertainty to pricing and reserving, partly qualified actuaries are important in doing the basic to advanced actuarial tasks in these businesses. The research paper investigates the role of partly qualified actuaries in the insurance industry in Nepal and analyzes the factors impacting the role of PQA in Nepalese insurance companies.
