Björn specializes in the following areas:

Björn has in-depth knowledge in classic mathematical fields such as product development, balance mathematics, and forecast calculations (local GAAP / Solvency II). His experience includes technical specifications for policy administration systems and tests (products and business processes).

Björn regularly advises life insurers on business control and strategic orientation.

Prior to joining Milliman, Björn was responsible for all actuarial tasks and functions as senior head of a department at a German insurance company.

He served as both the appointed actuary and the actuarial function holder. Also, Björn was technically responsible for the expanding development of the policy administration system.

Björn also worked as head of the consulting practice for a well-known software and consulting company, which offered a standard policy administration system. In his function, he was responsible for actuarial consulting, business process consulting, migration of policy administration systems, and customization.

Björn gained his first professional experience in life insurance in the actuarial product development for capital market-oriented products (e.g., unit linked products), first, as an employee, later as the group leader.
