Service Description

With over twenty years' experience in financial and actuarial consulting and reinsurance underwriting, I can expertly model and analyze on a net present value and/or IRR basis the cash flows associated with proposed projects or investments.

Pro forma modeling and forcasting can be a crucial part of the business planningg process.

The value of any analysis depends on the accuracy, quality and integrity of the underlying data. I take a hands-on, "soup to nuts" approach, willing to "scrub" raw data as necessary. Attention to detail is critical.

Excellent written communication skills, including the ability to express the relevance of business mathematics concepts to non-technical audiences and professional reports and presentations round out the package of services I can provide.
