Nazir Valani: Leading Actuaries of 2015 – Acquisition International – January 2016
KPMG LLP is a professional service company offering a wide range of services including auditing. We spoke to Nazir Valani, Partner and North American Leader for AXIS Implementation at KPMG. Nazir is also the National Leader of the Actuarial Practice at KPMG in Canada.
AXIS is an actuarial software that is used extensively in Canada and the Caribbean. It is also increasingly being used in the US and Asia. My role involves working with the US KPMG team to leverage the tremendous opportunities for end to end actuarial
and finance transformation initiatives.
I am also the National Leader of the Actuarial Practice at KPMG and the senior actuary for Life Insurance, Pensions and Property & Casualty in Canada. My role has significantly expanded since I joined KPMG in August 2012. Within this role I am
responsible for providing actuarial services to audit and advisory clients.
Prior to KPMG, I was an entrepreneur. I founded Valani Consulting in 1998 and operated the company for 14 years. Over these 14 years, Valani Consulting went from a one-man operation to becoming the 2nd largest Life Actuarial Practice in Canada.
