    Hi, I've recently graduated with a 2.1 in Economics and Finance. I've already begun my professional risk management qualifications opting to obtain GARP's Financial risk manager certification. I'm planning on getting both parts of this qualification completed two months into when my MSC would start ( November 2017)

    However i'm not too sure what MSC to opt for between Fin maths or Actuarial science as although majority of employers ask for Financial maths which highly complements risk management, Actuarial science also covers a large amount of maths aswell as focusing on many other aspects of financial and risk analysis and economics and although majority of people who study this go down the actuary route ending up in insurance/pensions etc there has been an increase in actuaries moving over to risk management

    Thank you
