Practical Techniques from Asset Management Less Known to Actuaries

Organised by the EAA – European Actuarial Academy GmbH.
The online course suits any actuarially trained person interested in learning simple and effective techniques. The web session is particularly beneficial for someone who has been working for five years or more and wants to broaden her/his skills as a senior. There are no technical requirements, but some experience with Excel and Python is helpful. The course has little added value if one wants to prepare for a CFA or risk management certificate.
