Ehren Nagel: SOA Predictive Analytics Certificate Has Positively Impacted My Work
Early in his career, Ehren Nagel, FSA, MAAA, scoured through podcasts and articles about predictive analytics, long suspecting this was a field with potential for him. But when he began working on a stochastic mortality project, he realized the SOA’s Predictive Analytics Certificate Program could help him make sense of the research and direct it toward actionable policy. As a senior pricing actuary at Legal & General America, predictive analytics has helped him communicate relevant data to stakeholders. It has also provided him with practical coding experience.
Ehren chose the SOA’s Predictive Analytics Certificate Program because it was set up to meet the needs of a practicing actuary. He also knew it would help him speak the language of data scientists. “I walked away from the predictive analytics program with a great understanding of R programming…and the data science world,” Ehren says.
