Longevitas Ltd is pleased to announce the founding of the annual Longevitas Prize for the best-performing student in the subject of survival models at the Department of Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics at Heriot-Watt University.

Accepting the introduction of the prize on behalf of the department, Professor Angus Macdonald, Head of Department, said "This is an excellent way of raising the profile of a key subject for actuaries. I am delighted to accept on behalf of the department."
