In the last decade, there have been mergers of the big actuarial consulting firms so this list has shrunk considerably. I’m listing the major global actuarial consulting firms and some prominent North American ones.

Even an actuary providing actuarial services after retirement by himself/herself can be considered an actuarial consulting firm (eg: Mike Consulting).
