French global reinsurer SCOR has presented its Actuarial Awards in seven countries around the world this year. The countries are: Germany, Singapore, Sweden, Spain, the UK, Italy and France.
Every year since 1996, SCOR has rewarded the best academic work in the field of actuarial science with annual prizes in several countries throughout the world. These prizes, rewarding students, are designed to promote actuarial science, to develop and encourage research in this field, and to contribute to the improvement of risk knowledge and management. The SCOR Actuarial Awards are recognised in the insurance and reinsurance industries as a mark of excellence.
The SCOR Actuarial Awards juries are composed of internationally recognised researchers and insurance, reinsurance and finance professionals. The winners are selected for their command of actuarial concepts, the quality of their analytical methods, and the originality of their research in terms of scientific advances and potential practical applications to the world of risk management.
Mr Denis Kessler, chairman & CEO of SCOR, said, "For more than 20 years, the SCOR Actuarial Awards have rewarded innovative work by young actuaries from around the world. SCOR is proud to support new thinking on risk analysis and management while promoting the emergence and recognition of young talent.”
