QED aims to be the leading actuarial consultancy in Africa and an emerging global consultancy. We have expanded beyond our traditional practice area of insurance to the banking sector and our employee benefits division and analytics department extends our reach to most corporates.

QED Actuaries & Consultants have been providing actuarial services over the past 25 years from South Africa and more recently from our offices in Mauritius, Kenya and Nigeria. Known wherever we operate simply as QED, and already the largest independent actuarial consulting firm in Africa, we have emerged onto the global stage, delivering our services in the UK, Turkey and The Bahamas, in line with our strategy of expanding beyond the African continent.

Our specialist advisory teams offer actuarial and risk management solutions to life and non-life insurers, healthcare providers, pension funds, banks,  regulatory and industry bodies, insurance associations, retailers and developmental organisations.

Our Values


As a best-practice firm, we take pride in our commitment to maintaining the highest professional standards for both our work and our people. We are an approved service provider with the Actuarial Society of South Africa (ASSA), and require all our staff to comply with our Codes of Conduct and those set out by ASSA and/or the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries UK.


We are committed to keeping up to date with developments in the financial services industry and, where possible, in influencing them. In addition to being actively involved in various African industry and actuarial bodies, we have representation on the Life Assurance, Short Term Insurance, AIDS and ERM committees of the Actuarial Society of South Africa. We also maintain a full-time Research and Development division to ensure that we keep abreast of the latest developments.


We keep a detailed checklist as well as a comprehensive audit trail in every exercise we undertake, while our structure and approach allow us to respond quickly to our clients’ requirements, and to provide clear and pragmatic advice directly when required. With our wide range of clients,  from those without in-house actuarial capabilities to institutions with strong internal teams, we are able to tailor our services to suit every operational context.
