Martin Clarke - Government Actuary
Martin Clarke has been the Government Actuary since September 2014. He is the scheme actuary for the pension schemes of public institutions including NHS, the armed forces and MPs and is responsible for producing the quinquennial report on the National Insurance Fund.
The Government Actuary talks about the new GAD 2025 Strategy, which sets out refreshed objectives and a renewed framework for the department over the next 5 years.
In his first blog of 2020, the Government Actuary reflects on the challenges and opportunities of a new year. Martin Clarke looks at how actuarial expertise has evolved, and he concludes the Government Actuary’s Department (GAD) has “a firm mission to learn, adapt and at times experiment.”
Actuaries are financial risk professionals, and at the Government Actuary’s Department (GAD) we provide impartial actuarial analysis to government and public sector clients. Our expertise covers insurance, investment, modelling, quality assurance, data science, pensions and social security.
