The COVID-19 Actuaries Response Group (ARG) has been named winner of the Judges’ Award for contribution to the industry at the Insurance ERM 2021 awards.
This recognition of ARG’s work comes almost a year to the day since the group came together, and just as it passed a key milestone of publishing its hundredth bulletin.
ARG comprises actuaries and non-actuaries with a range of relevant specialisms, many of whom had been individually tracking the pandemic and working on possible outcomes before they were approached to join the group.
Chris Cundy, editor at Insurance ERM, said: “The Judges’ Award is usually made to an individual but this year the panel decided to award it to the group of people who have contributed to the COVID-19 Actuaries Response Group. All the volunteer members of the group have made a superb effort to research and communicate crucial information about COVID-19. They have really showcased the risk management and modelling skills of actuaries, and their work has been recognised throughout the industry and to the very top of government.”
