Expert actuarial advice

This paper forms one chapter of the Thomson Reuters publication "Expert Evidence", and was written by three of our directors.

The chapter provides a summary of the relevant skills attributable to actuaries which may be relevant in a court proceeding, the codes and guidelines that apply, and addresses the most common areas actuaries provide evidence, including: loss of earnings and superannuation; family law superannuation; the current value of future expenditure; costs of funds management; and life interest valuations.
