At Milliman in Australia, we are risk management and retirement experts.

We help institutions, such as dealer groups, fund managers and superannuation funds, control the many forms of risk their clients face as they walk down the path to retirement.

We understand the impact of investment, longevity and interest rate risk – as well as other retirement hazards – and can help you manage them.

Our local consultants are ably supported by the resources and technology of our global group, which spans 55 offices and has more than 1,300 consultants and actuaries.

The Milliman Managed Risk StrategyTM aims to stabilize the volatility of investment portfolios and defend against loss during severe sustained market declines. The strategy is employed across more than US$50 billion in global assets. Our institutional risk management capabilities have been deployed across a further US$90 billion, making Milliman one of the largest independent risk management organisations in the world.

It offers investors the same institutional-grade risk management techniques used by many of the world’s largest companies to protect their assets, including through the 2008-2009 global financial crisis.
