Marcuson Consulting - your trusted actuarial partner

At Marcuson Consulting, we form a trusted partnership with our clients to identify and solve complex problems, based on deep-domain sector knowledge and technical expertise.

Our projects are carefully planned, allocating sufficient time from senior team members.  Through our mature and diligent approach and with the benefit of having a stable consulting team, we pride ourselves on our ability to build long-term relationships with our clients.

Our services are offered through three modes of work:

  • Core actuarial
  • Expert and Restructuring
  • Contractors +

Core Actuarial

At Marcuson Consulting, we offer consulting services supporting our clients with all aspects of actuarial function in the non-life insurance sector.  Since we started in 2010, we have partnered successfully with numerous clients to provide both BAU and deep-dive actuarial projects.

Reserve Review

We are experts in all aspects of non-life reserving, including providing independent review and challenge of reserves, Lloyd’s Statements of Actuarial Opinion (“SAO”) and M&A advice.  We can help you quantify reserve uncertainty for Solvency II purposes and build and review processes and models, including for valuation of liabilities under Solvency II.

Internal Model Validation

Having supported multiple insurers and Lloyd’s syndicates since the infancy of Solvency II, we are experts in internal model validation and are well-placed to validate all or part of your internal model.

Capital Modelling

We can help you design, build, parameterise and implement your internal capital model for Solvency II or your economic capital model for other purposes (eg to support underwriting and reinsurance decisions).  We can also deliver effective training to your board on the operation and use of the model.

Outsourced Actuarial Function

Leveraging on our thorough understanding of Solvency II and extensive experience in all core actuarial areas (reserving, capital modelling, pricing and risk management), we are ideally placed to assist you with your actuarial function.

You can rely on our well-balanced team and outsource your actuarial function to us.  We can also help to design your actuarial function, provide independent assurance surrounding its operation, or provide independent peer review of your Actuarial Function Report.

Audit Support

Leveraging our expertise in reserving, capital modelling and expert knowledge of audit processes, we can provide actuarial support to audit firms that are auditing UK and Gibraltar insurers.

Pricing Support

We can build and review your pricing models and frameworks, including integrating them with your other actuarial systems and processes.  Our intimate knowledge of most lines of business, coupled with our wider independent research, can help you keep abreast of best practice tools and techniques.

Enterprise Risk Management

We are experts in risk modelling, understanding the qualitative and quantitative processes that feed ERM frameworks and the way to design output management information to achieve effective board decision-making.  We understand how to make the most out of the interaction between risk and actuarial functions, and can help you design optimal structures.


Expert and Restructuring

As a boutique firm with a specialist focus on GI actuarial services, we are proud to be a truly independent consulting firm and are fully committed to the cause of our clients.  Since its being established in 2010, Marcuson Consulting has become one of the market leaders in providing expert services, including Part VII transfers, Expert Witness/Advisor and M&As.

Part VII Transfers

We can act as the independent expert on your Part VII project, or provide actuarial support to help your in-house team to prepare for one.

By the end of 2023, we have been approved by the PRA to act as independent expert for over 10 Part VII Transfers.  As a result, we have built extensive experience in Part VII Transfers across our team and established a clear approach which is well-accepted by the regulators.

Expert in Legal Proceedings

We can act as an Expert Witness or Expert Advisor in legal proceedings.  As recognised actuarial experts in general insurance well-versed in litigation and arbitration processes, we have the ideal credentials to act as an expert in contentious legal proceedings.

Mergers and Acquisitions

We provide buy-side and sell-side advisory services and post-acquisition assistance, working alongside your in-house team or other external advisors.  Our relatively small team enhances your confidence that our advice is conflict-free, while our approach and experience means we focus on key drivers of value.

Other expert services

As a result of our skills, deep domain expertise and independence, we are best placed to provide other expert services, including advice relating to:

  • Restructuring solutions
  • Portfolio analysis and troubleshooting
  • Solvent and insolvent run-offs
  • Support and advice to regulatory bodies, including skilled persons review

Contractors +

We can offer interim secondments on a short-term, long-term or flexible basis, help you to smooth out workflow peaks and troughs and access our deep domain expertise.  With our flexible secondment engagements, you can expect to have:

  • Access to skilled and experienced actuaries on a flexible basis
  • The choice of full-time, part-time or as-and-when basis
  • The choice of named individual(s) or a team
