Associate Professor, UNSW

Anthony Asher is an actuary well known for his interest in ethics in professional life, particularly the social impact of actuarial work. On the one hand this has led to product development, where benefits (and underlying investments) match the particular needs of the bereaved, the disabled and the elderly. On the other hand it has led to questions of professional education and regulation that support the development of judgement and justice. His current research includes investigation of the products and financial advice needed by retirees as their intellectual powers decline, and a virtue theory approach to risk culture and overregulation.​
