Actuarial and Analytics
Leadership Development Program

Travelers is continuously seeking top actuarial and analytic talent to join the only insurance company recognized as a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. One outstanding asset of this company is the Actuarial and Analytics Leadership Development Program (AALDP). The AALDP is a challenging five-year rotational program that provides technical development, business knowledge and leadership experience. The program is supported by cutting-edge industry technology and infrastructure within a large actuarial and analytic community. The goal of the program is to attract, develop and retain future actuarial and analytic technical and business leaders for the company.
