Dynamic Financial Analysis Prize

This award is made to the authors of the best papers submitted in response to a call for dynamic financial analysis discussion papers whenever the program is conducted by the Casualty Actuarial Society. Papers are judged by a specially appointed review committee on the basis of quality of the overall content of the paper as an advancement to the published literature on dynamic financial analysis as well as other factors. If no paper is considered eligible in a given year, the award shall not be made. The committee's decision will be final. Recipients need not be members of the Casualty Actuarial Society. The announcement of the award will be made at the Dynamic Financial Analysis Seminar at which the papers are discussed.

The amount of the Dynamic Financial Analysis Prize is determined annually.
