Congratulations from all of us at Gaaps Actuarial Recruitment to Karl Schriek has become the 1000th person to earn the prestigious Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuary (CERA) credential.
Schriek is a Fellow of the Actuarial Society of South Africa and an actuary at General Reinsurance Africa. Schriek said, “I am excited about what the CERA qualification has to offer. It is a truly robust risk management credential and CERAs are well positioned to play a leading role in the future of risk management.”
The CERA Global Association grants actuarial organisations the right to award the global CERA credential to individual actuaries who have satisfied the requisite education and training requirements.
“CERAs develop effective quality solutions for the risks and opportunities of their clients. They are uniquely qualified to address all types of risk, including financial, operational and strategic risks,” said Fred Rowley, Chairperson of the CERA Global Association. “Businesses that rely on CERAs can make smarter, more confident decisions related to complex risk management challenges affecting business and society,” Rowley said.
The CERA was initially established in the United States by the Society of Actuaries in 2007. Currently organisations in Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, South Africa, United Kingdom and the US are authorised to award the CERA credential.
