Default US actuaries working remotely for UK companies

Does anyone have experience working for UK companies from the US as a consultant/contractor?

OR has anyone hired anyone in this capacity?

I'd say, this is unheard of and why would you hire US actuaries to work in the UK if UK has over-abundance of actuaries UK qualified?

The questions is about US actuaries working remotely for UK companies, so still based in the US. It does happen occasionally, but there needs to be a specific reason for it.

Say a UK / multinational company needs some local US expertise for a specific project. Or one thinking of expanding into the US starts out by using a few local consultants before setting up a subsidiary / associate company. Or if the consultant has some fairly unique expertise, say in something like software where remote working is less of an issue.

UK actuaries are heavily discriminated against in the UK and the IFoA's arrangements with international bodies are part of the problem.

Since actuary_truther is already serving a 14-day vacation for a post about the IFOA outside the thread for such posts, I just gave him a warning for this and at least one other occurrence. If it happens again after the 14 days expire, more vacation.
