The CERA Global Association is pleased to announce that Jared Strock has become the 2,000th person to earn the prestigious CERA (Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuary) credential.

Jared is an Associate of the Society of Actuaries and a Consulting Actuary with CSG Actuarial, LLC in Omaha, Nebraska.

Frank Sabatini, Chairman of the CERA Global Association, is delighted to congratulate Jared on this significant achievement and recognise this important step forward for global risk management. “There is a global demand for skilled enterprise risk management professionals. CERA is one of the most comprehensive and rigorous enterprise risk management qualifications available.

A CERA, because of their training and experience, can assess and manage the entire risk spectrum of an organisation including financial, operational and strategic risk. Jared and the other CERAs across the globe add value to enterprise risk management through their rigorous training, making them the best equipped to provide a 360o view of an organisation’s risk profile.”


The CERA Global Association grants actuarial organisations the right to award the global CERA credential to individual actuaries who have satisfied the requisite education and training requirements. Organisations are first subject to a rigorous review of their proposed CERA program, ensuring it meets the Association’s demanding standards. Currently organisations in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the US are authorised to award the CERA credential.

The CERA was initially established in the United States by the Society of Actuaries in 2007. In 2009, 15 national associations from 12 countries joined to create the global CERA credential that addresses the growing need for highly qualified risk professionals, especially in the finance sector.

The current members of the CERA Global Association cover five continents and include: Institute of Actuaries of Australia; Canadian Institute of Actuaries; Actuarial Institute of Chinese Taipei; Institut des Actuaires (France); Deutsche Aktuarvereinigung e.V.
