These prizes 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. They are recognized in the insurance and reinsurance industries as a mark of excellence.

In 2013, the SCOR actuarial prizes were awarded from 18 October to 11 December in five different countries: France, Germany, Italy, Singapore and the United Kingdom. The prizes awarded in Singapore, which cover the entire Asia-Pacific region, were a new addition.

The SCOR Actuarial Awards juries are composed of researchers and insurance, reinsurance and finance professionals. The winners are selected for their command of actuarial concepts, the quality of their analysis instruments, and the potential practical applications of their research to the world of risk management.

Denis Kessler, SCOR’s Chairman and CEO, comments: “The SCOR 2013 Actuarial Awards reward young actuaries from across the globe for their innovative work in risk analysis and management. This is the 18th year SCOR (scor.com) has sponsored these awards, which demonstrates the strong emphasis we put on supporting both actuarial science and the development of young talent in the global insurance industry.”
