hi ! Of late I have come across a couple of forums where in the discussions are blooming out of losses caused by Theft and Burglary but somehow got directed towards oblivion. I truly didn’t understand the stature and the priorities that the commuters have set over there and its too complex to understand the standards that they are trying to establish. The most notable one amongst them seems the I simply didn’t get the idea behind creating a separate space for the Actuaries at a common man’s forum. As far my understanding goes, actuaries are high-end professionals rather mathematicians who use the risk factors from the experience tables. Am I gonna believe that they are gonna share their invaluable experiences over here ? Either the community people are delivering towards resolving issues which are far beyond the senses of a common man like me or they simply wanna earn recognition worldwide. Its truly interesting to guess what the community wants to achieve in the long run! Andy regards.
