Last month the CAS participated in a webinar hosted by Canada’s Actuarial Students’ National Association (ASNA), on the topic of Excel and R for Actuaries. The webinar was presented by CAS members Derek Wong, FCAS, Analytics Senior Consultant at CNA Insurance and Brian Fannin, ACAS, CSPA, CAS Staff Actuary.
The presentation provided an overview of each software package and featured live demos of common uses and functions of each software that are most relevant to actuaries.
