Research on theoretical basis of actuarial science is mainly conducted by academic personnel in the two major universities offering actuarial educational programmes. Lecturers in these programmes have many years of teaching and research experience in actuarial science, and have strong academic and professional qualifications such as Fellow or Associate of the Society of Actuaries. Many actuarial articles have been published on various top journals in the field of actuarial science. The universities also have actuarial researchers from other universities in Mainland China and abroad as regular visitors to exchange research information.

Research on practical topics has also been conducted by practicing actuaries and their research findings are usually delivered in the conferences and seminars organized by the Actuarial Society of Hong Kong and / or other actuarial organizations. The Actuarial Society of Hong Kong has also been conducting mortality studies for the Hong Kong insurance industry. The following list provides brief description of the research projects undertaken by the Actuarial Society of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the University of Hong Kong.
