On September 6, 2013, Professor Elias Shiu, University of Iowa, delivered the second Ron and Mary Simon Lecture on the topic of “Option Pricing Without Tears: Valuing Equity-Linked Death Benefits.” On the same day, the Simon Lecture Series expanded to become the Simon Actuarial Day, with three student research presentations immediately preceding Professor Shiu's lecture. The lecture series was instituted in 2011. The first lecture was presented by Emil Valdez, who at the time was affiliated with the University of Connecticut.
