An Introduction to the blog

I’m Vaibhav Agarwal, a professional in the consulting industry with close to 2.5 years of experience. Alongside being a near-qualified actuary, I’m a certified FRM, and have had the opportunity to explore diverse kinds of projects in my limited months of experience.

I’ve always believed in drawing information from data, and gaining knowledge from numbers. This blog is a platform to help students and professionals access and explore the pet projects that I usually take on over the weekends, to expand the analytical skill-set. I aspire to actively engage with actuarial aspirants to provide any insights possible, as much as what we fortunately received from the industry professionals during the early days in the profession.

If you’re willing to contribute to new projects/ new ideas , or have a project that you want to showcase on the platform, please feel free to reach out to me. I’d be more than delighted to work with a team on an interesting project over the weekends.
