Prime Re Academy

Prime Re Academy - stands for reengineering the academic state-of-the art into practical applications. It is a "refinery" of useful techniques and important methods, in which longstanding PRS experts train other insurance professionals with hands-on workshops.

Register now for the following workshops:

Actuarial Engineering, 27 - 29 June 2018
Reinsurance Underwriting, 3 - 5 September 2018
Reinsurance Pricing and Structuring, 5 - 7 September 2018
The Standard Model of the Swiss Solvency Test, 22 - 23 October 2018
Risk, Capital and Solvency Models - an ORSA Perspective, 23 - 25 October 2018
The Standard Formula of Solvency II, 25 - 26 October 2017

The workshops are of technical nature and structured such that theory and practice alternately complement each other, creating a lively learning platform. We simultaneously present on two separate screens the theoretical foundations in PowerPoint® format and the matching practical applications on an Excel® platform. Thanks to the interlocking of theory and practice, the course contents can be taught in a most efficient manner and the participants can be challenged intensively.

The workshops are is designed for all professionals who are interested in financial modeling. Participants do not need to be fully qualified actuaries, however, they will benefit from a good command of Excel® (without VBA). In addition, they should be familiar with elementary concepts of statistics and stochastics.

Moreover, to enhance the international learning experience and networking, the workshops include joint lunches and dinners: this way the participants quickly get to know each other and the lecturers, so that promptly a dynamic atmosphere of mutual challenge and know-how transfer sets in. In particular we encourage the participants to steer the focus of the workshop according to their current needs, e.g. with more emphasis on life or property & casualty business.
