Munich Re victory for U of M actuarial students

A team of students from the University of Manitoba took home the $20,000 grand prize at the Munich Re Cup, a prestigious national actuarial case competition hosted in Toronto on March 9.

The team’s first-place victory is the second in the competition’s three-year history. Hosted by reinsurance company Munich Re, the case competition was open to all Society of Actuaries (SOA) Centres of Excellence across Canada. The Warren Centre for Actuarial Studies and Research at the Asper School of Business was named a Centre of Excellence in 2009.

“The Warren Centre is proud to have had such a quality team compete and win this prestigious competition. This is an exceptional achievement,” says Lysa Porth, the centre’s interim director and Guy Carpenter Chair in Agricultural Risk Management and Insurance.
