One of the events included guest speaker Professor lain Allan, former Strategy Director from the Royal Bank of Scotland.
A spokesperson for City Actuarial Society Committee 2011/2012 said: "We are honoured to have received this award. The nominees are of a high standard and we are grateful for the recognition we have received for our work. We would like to thank the Faculty of Actuarial Science and Insurance at Cass Business School for their continuous support and guidance. This award could not have been achieved without the inspiration and support we have received from our members. We have a wonderful actuarial community at City University."
Head of Faculty of Actuarial Science and Insurance, Dr Ben Rickayzen said: "Many congratulations to City Actuarial Society on winning the award. They have been truly excellent this year - easily the best actuarial society that the University has had in my 18 years here. I definitely think that the society is worthy of the award of Most Improved Society."
