This ground-breaking, international research programme has exceeded its expectations, delivering outputs beyond its primary aims. The Actuarial Research Centre (ARC) funded Longevity and Morbidity Risk (LMR) programme was led by Principal Investigator Professor Andrew Cairns of Heriot-Watt University and co-sponsored by the Society of Actuaries (SoA) and the Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA).

The programme produced numerous Research Outputs, with 19 papers published in international journals, 120 presentations including 16 webinars, sessionals, and workshops, and has supported IFoA members by providing 1,621 CPD claims. 

Professor Cairns describes some of the research highlights in this short video below. Visit the Research Impact Summary for an overview of the programme. One of the key outputs from the research was the creation of a bespoke mortality index for England and an interactive App that highlights mortality inequalities.
