A huge congratulations to our two Undergraduate winners of the Winton Capital Prize, Benjamin Lim Teng Kiat and Woo Hee Yik. Both students were awarded the Winton Capital Prize for Academic Excellence in Statistics with Financial Applications.
Benjamin: "I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Winton for their generous support and the Department of Statistics for enriching my student experience in the LSE. Additionally, I would also like to take this opportunity to express my particular thanks to Prof Dassios, Prof Barrieu, Dr Baurdoux and Dr Qiao for going the extra mile."
Woo: "I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the Department of Statistics of LSE and Winton for awarding me the Winton Capital Prize. Thank you LSE for giving me the chance to explore the field of actuarial science and gain an understanding of its applications in the financial world. The key lesson that I learned from my journey with the LSE is that you never know your potential until you tried and committed yourself into something that you hope to achieve in life. I feel proud that I made it and this is a moment that I will remember for the rest of my life"
