I am currently in the UK working for a well known asset management firm and have decided to pursue an actuarial career. I graduated from University two years ago in London having gained a BSc in Mathematics and Physics and I am now applying for membership to the Institute of Actuaries or Faculty of Actuaries in the UK so that I can take a couple of exams independently and apply to actuarial firms. I am also considering the US market in the near future as I would like to eventually relocate to the US as I have family there. I was wondering if I completed a few of the Core Technical (CT) Stage Exams (UK based exams) and relocated to the US, how will these UK exams be weighed up against the US actuarial preliminary exams? Is it difficult to get into an entry level position in the US with a few UK exam passes?
You shall take the CT exams offered by the Institute/Faculty of Actuaries, you no need to worry about working in US in the future, because you can get exemptions for the equivalent subjects you have passed with the Institute/Faculty.
