Research is vital to the growth of the actuarial profession and the Casualty Actuarial Society. Research refined and reviewed becomes part of CAS Publications and the canon of actuarial literature.
To continuously expand and enhance the skills of the modern actuary, the CAS supports research in a variety of areas. The most recent requests for research can be found here, along with committee resources and past research projects.
The vast array of CAS publications encompass the theoretical aspects of actuarial science as well as the practical business facets of building a profession in property-casualty insurance.
