Firms like Duff & Phelps, EY, KPMG, and PwC are essential in the financial sector for their ability to take a broader view of the market and provide valuations from an independent, third-party perspective.
Consultants in firms like these employ communication skills as well as quantitative skills as they help clients with financial reporting and tax advisory services. They work directly with clients to assist them with key strategic and operational decisions, which makes communication and presentation skills a key skill for these roles. These firms work with a wide variety of clients, which means broader exposure to the market, and the chance to develop experience in a wide variety of financial instruments and industries.
