Mr Guy Thorburn

"I support Australian Government Agencies, helping them to make informed decisions based on the independent actuarial advice that my team and I provide. In turn, this informs their policy recommendations. Our advice covers a broad spectrum of actuarial services, such as Superannuation and retirement incomes, social services, education, population studies (such as the Australian Life Tables) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme to name a few."
