The European Actuarial Academy is one of the main providers of actuarial education – especially when it comes to Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). The concept of ERM has gained significant momentum in the insurance industry and beyond.

We offer a series of four training courses and exams (through DAV) to all actuaries who want to deepen their knowledge in Enterprise Risk Management and gain the international ERMcredential CERA. The defining characteristics of the CERA-credential as offered by the European Actuarial Academy are:

  • Provides the most comprehensive and rigorous training in ERM
  • Is a fast-growing globally-recognised credential
  • Combines a range of business and professional skills with the mathematics of finance and risk
  • Equips risk management professionals to empower better business decisions and more profitable business development
  • Has a wide range of applications in insurance and finance, and well beyond actuarial-academy.com
  • Is supported by actuarial associations worldwide
  • Is recognised and transferable internationally
  • Has a rigorous and advanced curriculum underpinned by actuarial science, with an emphasis on ERM and professionalism
  • Offers career choices outside the traditional actuarial markets

This seminar is one part in a course that consists of four modules. They can be booked as a whole series to fulfil the requirements for receiving the CERA designation, or individually as CPD training. Written exams on the course are offered subsequently.

Please contact your actuarial association regarding the recognition of the seminars and the exams. The national association has to be at least Acceding Party of the CERA Global Association so that an actuary who passes this course may receive the CERA credential.

This seminar deals with the challenges of implementing ERM Processes in practice. Experienced speakers present and discuss examples from practice, eg. how to define an organisation’s risk strategy, risk appetite, risk tolerances and limits, and of course discuss how business strategy influences risk strategy and show their necessary interaction. In a detailed case study in non-life insurance, we demonstrate the close relationship between ERM and Value and Risk Based Management. We give examples how financial and other risks influence the selection of strategy, and we show how ERM can be appropriately imbedded in an entity’s strategic planning and discuss the Own Risk and Solvency Assessment.
