Welcome to Carolina’s Actuarial Student Organization (CASO) !

A team of five of our students competed in the Society of Actuaries 2017 Student Case Study Challenge, finishing third in international competition.  The challenge provides an opportunity to apply actuarial skills to real-world problems through research, analysis, and the development of models.  The third place finish secured a $2,000 grant to UNC from the Society of Actuaries, as well as cash awards to the team.  Members included MDS majors Trent Hollandsworth (team leader), Amy Nelson, Yirun Li and John Mullan, as well as Computer Science/Economics major Tyler Thrower.

We have two new Fellows of the CAS and seven new Associates of the SoA.  Congratulations to  Tommy Wright, FCAS (Liberty Mutual); Matt Moran, FCAS (Transatlantic Reinsurance);  Silver Zhou, ASA (Voya Insurance & Annuity); Brian Hughes, ASA (Aon Hewitt); Deon Pettiford, ASA (Lincoln Financial Group); Adam Vos, ASA (Fidelity Benefits Consulting); Anna Buchholtz, ASA (McKinsey & Co.); Yebei Lin, ASA (Willis Towers Watson) and Darin Stojanovic, ASA (DS First Financial).
