Ash Evans Taylor Fry

Ash is an actuary and analytics expert with 18 years’ experience in Australia and New Zealand, guiding evidence-based decisions in the health sector, and for injury and disability schemes. He collaborates with public and corporate organisations, performing long-term liability, premium and funding forecasts. This includes individual pathway modelling and public health funding models to inform initiatives.

Ash tailors his advice by partnering with clients in public health, the not-for-profit sector, workers compensation insurance and compulsory third party insurance. He says:

“Building an effective, pragmatic solution depends on working side by side with a client. The best model in the world will falter without context and understanding to design it and teamwork to implement it.”

Ash helped a major injury scheme navigate the rising prevalence of psychological injury claims by initiating early, open dialogue, monitoring performance and evaluating interventions. His advice is responsive, pragmatic and attuned to emerging risks and trends.

Ash formerly lectured in financial mathematics at Melbourne University, where he completed his PhD.
