Julie Sims


Julie is a former petroleum engineer and mathematical modeller, with a PhD in maths.

Since joining us in 2007, she has implemented flexible reserving methods and developed the software to apply them. Her statistical models of Victorian workers compensation accident data have assisted scheme resource allocation.

Julie also conducts outstanding claims valuations and peer reviews for lines such as medical malpractice reinsurance, workers compensation and liability insurance.

She is the recipient of two Actuaries Institute grants: the first in 2009 for research; the second in 2013 to test and develop robotic reserving techniques, which she shared with Taylor Fry Director GrĂ¡inne McGuire.
