Congratulations Victoria Gao! CERA reaches 5,000!

The CERA Global Association (CGA) is pleased to extend its congratulations to Victoria Gao on becoming the 5,000th person to earn the prestigious CERA (Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuary/Certified Enterprise Risk Analyst) credential.

Victoria is a member of the Actuaries Institute in Australia and an Associate Director in the Debt Markets Securitisation team at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

Nick Dumbreck, Chair of the CGA, is delighted to congratulate Victoria Gao on this significant achievement and to recognise this important step forward for global risk management. “There is strong global demand for skilled enterprise risk management professionals. CERA is one of the most comprehensive and rigorous enterprise risk management qualifications available.

“Because of their training and experience, CERAs are able to assess and manage the entire risk spectrum of an organisation including financial, operational and strategic risk. Victoria and the other CERAs around the globe add value to enterprise risk management through their rigorous training, making them the best equipped to provide a 360° view of an organisation’s risk profile.”

Victoria says, “For me CERA was very relevant due to its applicability in non-traditional actuarial fields of work. The theory provides a good foundation in the understanding of risk, its assessment and treatment.

“Although I don’t work in a traditional actuarial area, the skills garnered from an actuarial qualification are highly regarded and applicable in many fields. The risk understanding, quantitative abilities and logical mindset developed is valuable in any role.”
