Actuarial Director

Permanent in Hong Kong

Coherent is Hong Kong’s most exciting Insurtech firm with a market leading product comparison platform for independent distributors. We are building on this success with a pipeline of products and services focused on using digital tools to enhance the way that insurance is sold across Asia. The depth of our actuarial, technology and insurance business skills is unique within a start-up business, reflecting the opportunity we see to make a mark on the insurance industry and the size of our ambition.

70% of Hong Kong’s insurance brokers use Coherent because it provides unbiased product comparisons. This doesn’t happen by accident: our actuaries ensure that our comparisons and projections are fair, accurate and easy-to-use. The breadth and depth of our product knowledge is highly valuable to insurers’ product teams: we provide a product intelligence subscription service plus bespoke product related consulting services.

To keep growing we are hiring actuaries with top technical skills plus personal responsibility, creativity and flexibility. Our entrepreneurial outlook means working at Coherent is an empowering experience that makes us very special within Hong Kong’s insurance industry - no matter what the current stage of your career.
