The ARM Network Provides Actuarial Expertise and Cost-Effective Solutions to Global Clients

He is a senior consulting actuary with more than 25 years’ experience aiding numerous U.S. insurers on product management, capital strategy, and management of financial reporting paradigms. His perspective ranges from roles as Chief Actuary for life and health insurers, appointed actuary to multiple insurers, auditing actuary for three top 8 accounting firms, regulatory (state) senior actuary on the examination of actuarial balance sheets of four top 30 insurance companies, and a long-term consulting actuary.

ARM has the skill to challenge, in a professional manner, the audit client’s actuarial estimates,

We have used ARM for audit support for over 10 years. Their level of insight enhances our audit team’s knowledge of insurance company management and specifically actuarial processes. Beyond ARM’s technical expertise, their real strength is communicating to non-actuaries in a way that is very easy to understand. ARM also has the skill to challenge, in a professional manner, the audit client’s actuarial estimates. Their deliverables are very thorough and greatly exceed the needs to satisfy the PCAOB.

International Accounting Firm, Audit Partner
Your professionalism, attention to detail and ability to ‘help us understand’ aspects of our business,

I personally want to thank Cory Zass and his team at Actuarial Risk Management for their transitional efforts away from our previous Actuary. Everyone has commented on your professionalism, attention to detail and ability to ‘help us understand’ aspects of our business that the previous Actuary simply could never get to. Kudos that you could assemble that group of professionals. I look forward to having ARM as a partner for the long run so we can go down this journey together.

Insurance Holding Company, CFO
Insight and knowledge to help us better manage our policies,

There are other actuaries who can run a valuation; however, ARM brings greater insight and knowledge to help us better manage our policies.

Life, Investment Fund, Managing Partner
Delivered the right comprehensive product that was very receptive to our marketing side,

Brian Forman and Cory Zass provided excellent advisory as we embarked on our first Asian-focused product. The ARM team was very responsive to our needs and strategy and delivered the right comprehensive product that was very receptive to our marketing side while containing enough profit margins to ensured long-term solvency.

Off-shore Insurance Company, CEO
A confidential review for your management team and Board,

While insurers are subject to the same external environment, the selection of products, investment strategies, and operations presents risks and opportunities. The ARM Health Check scorecard provides a confidential review for your management team and Board to assess the health of your business.
