Brian Hey Prize

The Brian Hey prize was established in 1998. Brian Hey was a senior and respected actuary who worked in general insurance.

In his memory, his family and employer donated funds to further actuarial research and the IFoA has used this to establish a research-based prize in his memory. The Brian Hey Prize is usually awarded for the best paper submitted to each year’s GIRO Conference.
