Roosevelt Mosley Begins Term as CAS President
Bloomington, Ill. – On Wednesday, November 9, Pinnacle Principal and Consulting Actuary Roosevelt Mosley began his one-year term as the president of the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) at the close of the association’s annual conference in Minneapolis.
“I am humbled and honored to serve as president of the CAS,” Mosley said. “Institutions and organizations across the globe are experiencing great change and evolution, and the CAS is no different. Change, however, brings opportunity, and the time remains right for the CAS to continue progress on key initiatives that benefit our constituents—including in the areas of analytics and diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I).”
Mosley’s actuarial practice focuses on analytics, and he has served on several professional committees addressing DE&I issues. He has identified communications, DE&I and the continued progress of key professional skills as the three issues he will focus on during his term.
“The CAS, like any organization, may have issues it faces, but we are well-positioned for a very bright future,” Mosley said. “We can ensure it by promoting effective communication, DE&I and the essential skills identified in the CAS strategic plan as vital for the actuary of tomorrow: analytics, problem solving and domain knowledge. The advancement of those three issues will be the goal of my service as president.”
Mosley’s three-year service includes a one-year term as the organization’s president-elect, one-year term as president and a subsequent, final year term as past-president and Chair of the CAS Board of Directors.
Mosley is a Fellow of the CAS. He has been in the property and casualty insurance industry since 1994. He is considered one of the leading actuarial practitioners of predictive analytics applications for insurance including ratemaking and product development, competitive analysis and litigation support.
His notable recent work includes investigation into potential bias in insurance ratemaking. With Pinnacle Senior Consulting Actuary Radost Roumenova Wenman, he co-authored “Methods for Quantifying Discriminatory Effects on Protected Classes in Insurance,” a research study that analyzed the impacts of potential bias. He continues to be a sought-after speaker on the topic at industry and association events and meetings.
Mosley has a long history of volunteerism and has served on a number of professional committees with different organizations. He has served as a member of the CAS and Society of Actuaries (SOA) Joint Committee on Inclusion, Equity and Diversity, the board of trustees of the Actuarial Foundation and the CAS Public Relations Advisory Committee. He has also served as a member of the American Academy of Actuaries (AAA) Racial Equity Task Force.
“It’s a great time to be an actuary and working in the property and casualty field. Our profession is innovating and developing new approaches and solutions that will benefit the insurance industry as well as society. I feel fortunate to be able to continue my service to CAS in such an important and exciting time,” Mosley said.
