Becky Grant (AB 1993)

"I've been living in Zurich, Switzerland for the past four years. I'm working as an actuary at a global reinsurance firm which is headquartered here. The actuarial profession has turned out to be a good choice for me in more ways than one, most recently due to the fact that it is recognized internationally. I completed my Fellowship of the Society of Actuaries (FSA) in 2000 while working in the U.S., and at the time I did not know I would be living overseas. I moved to Switzerland with my husband in 2007 as a result of his job being transferred, and was able to find an actuarial job quickly here since there is a high demand. Speaking only English was not a problem since it is the official business language. I never expected my UGA statistics degree would one day help me work in Switzerland, but that is how it has turned out, and I am grateful for that."
