A Book of Remembrance

Robin

Robin Michaelson

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.

Robin took us to a trip to Lloyd’s whilst I was doing my BSc at Bayes. This trip sparked my interest in the market and I wrote my undergraduate dissertation on it, which Robin generously supervised.  Due to this dissertation I landed my first job at the largest syndicate at Lloyd’s. I owe a …

Thank you Robin for the visit to Lloyd’s board room, a room and floor which I have never accessed again, thank you for the visit to the staple inn, thank you for bringing actuaries in classes to share their insights, and thank you for marking my submissions with high points and remembering my name. …

I was saddened to hear of Robin’s passing. I studied Actuarial Science at (then) Cass from 2005 to 2008 and fondly remember his lectures where he developed great rapport with all of the students. He was always such a great fount of knowledge while still coming over in a humblle and amicable manner. Everyone …

Robin was my personal tutor from 2002 – 2006. To a bumbling undergrad in a new country, signed up to a difficult diet of studies who wasn’t at all sure what he was doing, Robin was a calm, guiding voice. I always enjoyed our interactions and really appreciate the time he spent with me. …

The two visits during my student years to Lloyd’s of London and Staple Inn remain etched in my memory. He was a great, influential, knowledgeable person from whom you always had something to gain from …

I joined bachelor degree of Actuarial Science in 2014 at Bayes Business School (formerly known as Cass Business School). I met Robin in his lecture of Actuarial Practicality in 2015. It was an interesting course. I remember trips with Robin to places such as Lloyds of London and Staple Inn, which were eye-opening. Robin explained …

I studied Actuarial Science from 2005 at Cass and Robin was a great inspiration. He gave me and Jalpa many blessings, and he is the main reason I wanted to be an actuary. I recall one time we sat over lunch in the canteen at Cass talking for many minutes, and he was so …

I had the pleasure of getting to know Robin during my almost ten years working with the faculty.  He would always make the time to have a chat and often had an amusing story to tell.  My sincere condolences go to Robin’s family and loved ones. Robin will be sincerely missed. …
