Applying Actuarial Techniques to Non-Traditional Actuarial Areas
You are one of the members for an actuarial consulting team that has been hired by a fictional country’s Minister of Transportation. For planning purposes, the Minister of Transportation is in the process of developing a model for forecasting future structural repairs for bridges. You will be provided with historical data of the country’s bridges, and your task is to come up with a set of probabilities to predict when they will need structural repairs. Details of the case and submission requirements will be sent out to each team once Round 0 starts.
All teams will consist of 4 students. If you would like to compete but can't find a team, you could email Neil Zhang, the Vice President of Case Competition at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can help you build a team.
All teams will be contacted after registering to compete by the Vice President of Case Competition with the Round 0 Case and detailed submission instructions.
For this round, your team will be asked to present a set of probabilities, by using your team’s assumptions, for bridges that will need to be repaired or replaced in any given year with the given database.
To move forward, your team will need to demonstrate strong analytical and research skills!
August 28th 2019
September 1st - October 1st 2019
All teams that are selected to move forward to Round 1 will be contacted by the Vice President of Case Competition with the Round 1 Case. Once Round 1 is closed, all the submissions will be sent to judges from the SOA, CIA and CAS for marking purposes.
Once all the submissions are marked, 3 teams will be selected to present at ASNA 2020, which will be held from January 17th - 19th, 2020 at Niagara Falls!
All team members must be enrolled in a January 2020 Bachelors program to be eligible to compete in this case competition.
Please make sure before registering for the case competition that all team members will be available from January 17th – 19th, 2020 to present at the ASNA 2020 convention.
Due to the large volume of students that would like to attend the ASNA 2020 convention, we cannot reserve any spots for the teams participating in the case competition. Please make sure that you sign up for the 2020 convention when the registration is open.
