Each year, the IFoA seeks to recognise excellence in actuarial research by awarding prizes for exceptional research papers.
The research prizes are funded by the IFoA Foundation. We are currently seeking nominations for outstanding papers that could be considered for one of the following awards:
- The Peter Clark Prize, which is awarded to the best paper written by members of the profession and intended for an actuarial audience.
- The Geoffrey Heywood Prize, which considers papers demonstrating excellent levels of communication and engagement with a general actuarial audience.
The closing date for nominations is Monday 3 August 2020. Anyone can nominate, although individuals cannot self-nominate. The requirement for at least one author to be an IFoA member has been removed, opening the prizes up to the actuarial community around the world, regardless of membership status.
Papers must have been first presented to a mainly actuarial audience no earlier than 31 May 2019, or first published in final form with a publication date in 2019. All nominations will be assessed for both prizes.
For full details and eligibility criteria, and to nominate (via the online form) an outstanding paper that you think deserves recognition, go to hhttps://bit.ly/3dYXDbq
