A Book of Remembrance
Robin Michaelson joined the Faculty of Actuarial Science and Insurance at Bayes Business School (formerly Cass) – City, University of London 20 years ago to take charge of the Actuarial Practicality module given to our 2nd year BSc students. It was always a very popular module as Robin delighted in taking the students on tours to Staple Inn, Lloyd’s of London and other important financial landmark sites in the City. Robin was unusual in not just being an actuary, but also a blue badge guide. He was therefore brilliantly placed for giving fascinating tours to our students.
As well as giving the aforementioned module, Robin quickly established himself as our 4th emergency service by supervising final year projects and taking on personal tutees. He also gave modules to the Foundation students and students of the Maths department. All tasks he took on with great diligence. A huge number of alumni will be very sad to hear of his passing, as of course will be the teaching staff. Robin will be sorely missed.
