Mark Raw.jpg

Actuary & Financial Planner

Mark Berry is a Fellow of the Actuaries Institute. Mark started Berry Actuarial Planning in 2002 with the goal of applying actuarial skills to the provision of financial planning advice delivered in a professional transparent manner paid for by the customer to deliver their outcomes, thus enabling those seeking to be engaged with the management of their own financial plans to be empowered to achieve outcomes appropriate to their circumstances as opposed to outcomes that suit an institution.


In this respect, he has contributed to both the financial planning and actuarial professions with his paper titled "An Actuarial Journey into Financial Planning" (Read Here). Mark also appeared in the section Actuary Unearthed, if you want to read more about him.
