"My Dad worked in insurance, and I have always looked at it altruistically. Insurance is about alleviating financial hardship at the individual level and thus helping society as a whole."

Tim Hardie
Senior Director

Tim Hardie came to Vancouver from the UK in 1993 for a one-year stint with Special Markets Solutions’ predecessor, Seaboard Life. Then over 20 years went by.

“When I came to Canada, I was immediately impressed by the people I was working with. They handled their roles in a very mature manner. Even if they weren’t senior, people seemed to see the big picture and want to contribute to the company’s success.”

As an actuary, Tim has trained his eye on the larger perspective since his time at the University of Bath, where he earned a degree in Mathematics and Statistics. Today, he continues to focus on creating “the doorway through which insurance opportunities pass. My job is to make sure we accept risk but that we do so responsibly.”

So, does the numbers guy see another side to insurance? Unequivocally, yes.

“My Dad worked in insurance, and I have always looked at it altruistically. Insurance is about alleviating financial hardship at the individual level and thus helping society as a whole.”

Tim, an Associate of the Society of Actuaries, may be devoted to math and statistics at work, but away from work he has made space for the arts. A seasoned photographer who has shot more than 70 weddings, he’s also a musician, having played guitar and sung at his 1000-member church for more than 20 years.
