Jon Harwood, Sharanjit Paddam, Andy Pitman and Jessica Egan have been awarded the 2014 Taylor Fry General Insurance Seminar Silver Prize for their paper Can Actuaries Really Afford to Ignore Climate Change? The paper was presented at the Actuaries Institute General Insurance Seminar held from 17 to18 November 2014 in Sydney.
The Silver Prize was awarded to their paper as it was considered by the judging panel to have presented information about climate change in such a way as to raise the awareness of the profession regarding an important contemporary issue.
The independent judging panel included members from the Institute’s Research Council Committee (RCC), the General Insurance Practice Committee (GIPC) and one other participant on recommendation from the GIPC. All members of the judging panel were independent of Taylor Fry. The recommendation from the judging panel was approved by the RCC on 30 March 2015.
Your own thoughts on this contemporary issue are very welcome.
