Interns will work closely with professional risk managers, finance, legal and regulatory staff working through assigned project to assess and mitigate risk within the organization. Opportunities for the intern include classic enterprise risk assessment, preparing insurance materials for submission for quotes, Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) reviews and business continuity planning on both business and IT levels, projects to assess contingent business interruption exposures, claims management, broker interactions and developing cost of risk reports.
