This prize was established in 1993 in recognition of Charles A. Hachemeister's many contributions to Actuarial Studies in Non-Life Insurance (ASTIN) and his efforts to establish a closer relationship between ASTIN and the CAS. ASTIN was created in 1957 as the first specialty section of the International Actuarial Association (IAA).
Papers published or presented in the calendar year prior to the award year are eligible for the prize, including:
- Articles, workshop articles, and invited papers published in issues of the ASTIN Bulletin
- Papers presented at the ASTIN Colloquium
- International Actuarial Association Congress or Actuarial Approach for Financial Risks (AFIR) Colloquium papers
Papers will be judged by a specially appointed committee of the CAS.
In honor of Charles Hachemeister’s passion for connecting ASTIN’s primarily European-based membership to challenges faced by CAS members in North America, emphasis in selecting the prize-winning paper will be placed on the paper's impact for North American actuaries and practicality of application. If no paper is considered eligible in a given year, the award shall not be made. The committee's decision will be final.
The announcement of the award will be made annually at the CAS Spring or Annual Meeting.
The amount of the Charles A. Hachemeister Prize is currently $2,500.
