Scott Duncan Taylor Fry

Scott is an actuary with more than 15 years’ experience advising insurers, self-insurers, corporate clients and government.

He holds several Appointed Actuary roles, advises on scheme reforms, delivers long-tail pricing advice, and consults on loyalty program design and management. With a special interest in customer expectations, his advice is commercially focused, straightforward and strengthened by an ability to distil important concepts. He says:

“Tailored advice requires careful listening to the priorities and concerns of a client – always considering the broader context and implications of that advice.”

Scott’s recent projects include:

  • Costing proposed benefit changes for WorkSafe Victoria to improve the scheme’s financial sustainability
  • Designing robust workers compensation and medical indemnity pricing processes, ensuring the needs of his clients and the people they service are met.

Scott speaks regularly on topics of interest to the insurance industry, including the role it can play in driving innovation and keeping abreast of technological disruption. He is an active member of the Actuaries Institute General Insurance Practice Committee, which contributes to the strategic direction of the Institute.
