From October to December 2016, the SCOR Actuarial Awards were held in six countries: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
 
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.

 
Denis Kessler, Chairman and CEO of SCOR, comments: “The SCOR Actuarial Awards in 2016 reward young actuaries from across the world for their innovative work in risk analysis and management. This year marks the 20th anniversary of SCOR’s sponsorship of these awards, and consequently of its support for the development of actuarial science and the promotion of new talent on the global insurance and reinsurance market. The awards bear witness to SCOR’s commitment to research, and are fully in line with the work of the SCOR Corporate Foundation for Science.
