Brian Hey prize
The Brian Hey prize was established in 1998. Brian Hey was a senior and respected UK actuary who worked in general insurance. His family and employer donated funds on his death to further actuarial research. The £1,500 prize is available for the best paper submitted to each year's GIRO conference. The prize will only be awarded if papers of sufficient merit are received to warrant giving a prize. The prize will be announced and presented to the authors at the GIRO conference. The GIRO committee will evaluate papers and will decide on any prize winner(s). The committee's decision is final.
If you would like to submit a paper for the 2013 prize, the closing date for applications is Monday 19 August 2013. Download the paper template or email email@example.com with any questions.
