Default Future with Investments

I recently entered the Actuarial field as a Consultant in the P & C side. I have passed the first two exams, cross my fingers about exam M which I took today, so I still have the next year- two to pinpoint where I want to be in this career. However, from what have I heard from people about investments during interviews and just my personaly attraction to the investment banking industry I would like to learn more about it. Any general info is appreciated.

Is their investment opportunity on the Casualty side, or is it strictly on the SOA side? I am assuming I will continue to pursue my FCAS so that is why I am wondering. I have a few friends in investment banking and I feel some qualities between them and us are very similar, therefore some of us could succeed there and vice versa.
