The name is Zhixin Lim. That’s my handle for life. Admittedly, it doesn’t have a Bond-James-Bond quality to it. In mandarin, it translates to “new knowledge” or “renewed wisdom”. I try to dutifully live up to my name and to my parents’ expectations. No pressure.

I am an actuary. Since starting my career in 2009, I’ve had hands-on roles in modelling (of the actuarial kind, not of the Zac-Efron-strutting-his-stuff-down-the-runway variety), insurance and investment product design, asset- liability management, regulatory capital optimisation, and risk management (specifically investment risk and model risk). 

On this blog, I write about technology, business and sometimes pop culture. My views and expressed opinions are my own and are not those of my employer’s or the actuarial profession’s.
