Aon Benfield is looking to hire Catastrophe Risk Analysts and a 2010 alum has asked me to share this with Gustavus math and CS students who may be looking for a job. Here is what she says about these opportunities.
The job listings are here:
Here is a brief description of the job:
As part of the Catastrophe Management team, you will be an integral support role in assisting Aon Benfield brokers with risk assessment and risk management consulting for Aon Benfield clients
§ Run catastrophe modeling software for portfolio risk analyses in support of the world’s largest reinsurance broker, Aon Benfield
§ Prepare property insurance policy data for catastrophe risk analysis using Microsoft Access, SQL Query Analyzer and other data conversion tools
§ Use proprietary software to design and manage catastrophe reinsurance programs
§ Provide real-time loss estimates of actual catastrophic events around the world
§ Prepare and send catastrophe risk assessment data to reinsurers and participate in reinsurance market calls
§ Assist clients in the understanding of catastrophe risks, sensitivity studies, and added analytics based on catastrophe model results
I’ve been working there for almost 4 years and I absolutely love it. I first learned about reinsurance when the Gustavus math department took a field trip to Collins (who was later purchased by Aon’s closest competitor – Guy Carpenter). I would love to pay it forward and inform current seniors of this fun, challenging, and fast-paced industry. We also have a large group of Gusties, and it would be great to add more Gustavus alum to the team.
