Each year, global reinsurance company SCOR rewards the best academic work in the field of actuarial science with prizes in several countries around the world. These prizes, some of which are financed by the SCOR Foundation for Science, 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 recognised in the insurance and reinsurance industries as a mark of excellence.
From October to December 2017, the SCOR Actuarial Awards were held in five countries: France, Germany, Italy, Sweden and the UK. The 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.
The winner of the UK Actuarial Award was Pengziwei Luo of Cass Business School, City University of London, for her dissertation on 'Credibility Balanced Bias vs. Instability Trade-Off Within Double Chain Ladder'.
