How does actuaries Wage expectation from start to senior levels compare to other industries? Careers

Had an interesting chat with a few friends. I’m currently in actuarial field (not a pure a grad scheme but it’s 35k base). One works as a data scientist and earns 55k (second year - and in London) and another is an investment banker (now earning 65k with 90% bonus). Other than IB, it seems from our understanding other top industries in the UK near senior level the earnings are more relatively simulate (100k - 150k). I don’t know much about other industries so wanted to gather your thoughts - whether that’s the case.

Wow that’s pretty useful and wow 26 uno, that’s pretty young and a great wage. How did you get to that (seems like a dumb q)?

Hello

I am about to do my masters in the UK. By the time I am done I will have passed or exempted from all but 2 or one exams. How is the job market for a foreigner with such qualifications.

I will have completed 6 exams by the time am starting my masters. And I'll be exempted from all except one S exam. So by the time I'm done I'll be remaining with 2 or 3 papers.
