Default ERM Consulting Skills

Hello Finance & Investment Actuaries!

I'm a rising senior aspiring to practice actuarial science. What practical skills does someone need to know in order to help with some projects at an ERM consulting firm?

I'm thinking excel and VBA. But aren't so sure.

There are very few, if any, EL ERM jobs. The nature of that type of work means that you need to be able to look at the business from a high level, which you basically can't do without industry experience.

If I were you I'd pick up Sim Segal's book if you want to learn about ERM. Anecdotally, at my firm, most of the ERM modeling they do is in Excel/VBA and I think some proprietary software.
