SCOR Sweden Re awards its 5th annual Actuarial Prize at the Nordic Life Insurance Conference in Stockholm

The 5th SCOR Sweden Re Actuarial Prize was awarded to Länsförsäkringar Fondliv Actuary Masar Al-Mosawi, during the Nordic Life Insurance Conference in Stockholm on October 12, 2018.

The winning paper “An Extension of Generalized Linear Models for Dependent Frequency and Severity” deals with a subject that many have tried to describe, but few have managed to handle in such an elegant way. Masar’s educational writing style really made his paper stand out from the other entries.
