About Us

Your Actuarial Consulting Firm

Established in 2004, Hildi Incorporated quickly secured a reputation for top-quality service while still providing personal attention to each and every client and situation. Our approach is simple in its philosophy, yet significant in the results we deliver for you.

Actuarial Services Solved!

From the very beginning, Hildi Incorporated determined to provide a higher level of actuarial service. We didn’t want to fall prey to the unnecessary expenses and unwieldy departments found within larger firms, which bog down efficiency and force impersonal interactions.

Instead, our small, yet highly experienced team of industry leaders has levied decades of dedicated customer service, insight, and skill in order to give our clients access to the answers they need—and we will continue to do so without fail.
