Financial modelling is fundamentally about predicting the future, and our spreadsheets are only as good as the projection models that we design and implement in Excel. Actuaries are no strangers to this challenge, as they devote their professional (and sometimes personal) lives to estimating the impact of future events and quantifying the uncertainty around the estimate.
Hear Rob Deutsch, a qualified actuary, provide insights from the actuarial profession on creating robust financial models that drive business success, managing the uncertainty inherent in all financial models, and communicating modelling results to management and other stakeholders.
