I've toyed with the idea of working in Bermuda at some point in my career. I'm currently an ASA about 1-2 years out from my FSA. I work in valuation for a life insurance company, although I have less than a year of experience in this position (worked in pension consulting prior). Any demand for life actuaries in Bermuda?

I don't think there is a huge demand on the life side. I'm not sure exactly what the demand is...

Former colleague of mine recently got a reinsurance gig in Bermuda. He's ASA with 3 years experience in life pricing.

I think there's some demand at the present moment. Going through a recruiter seems like the best bet.

I don't get why Bermuda though, you can easily move to the States and check the two boxes

Is it easy to just move to the states? Since we have thousands of actuaries on the ground already I think it would be rare for a company to go out of its way to make an offer to a Canadian unless it was a spousal issue or a very special situation. Bermuda has almost no actuaries so there is usually not an issue of having an easy local option to fill a spot.

And I assume AbedNadir is dreaming of a boat in front of his house on the water next to a golf course with palm trees as opposed to seating his ass off in Tallahassee a couple hours from the beach.

I am seriously thinking about Bermuda now, too. I wonder if it's the type of place where one can only live 3-5 years, xor it's a good enough place to live long-term as well (healthcare, education, retirement).
