Science of risk prize


We are looking for the very best published research covering five areas of risk.

The top prize is £5,000.

The Prize

If you have carried out insurance relevant research on key topics then we want to hear about it.

The Science of Risk prize is designed to help reward and raise awareness of such work within the insurance community.

All you have to do is write a 1000 word summary explaining why your research is relevant to insurers in general – and the Lloyd’s market in particular. Our team of judges will then review the applications and pick winners in several categories. The winners and runners up will receive a cash prize and the opportunity to present to senior leaders in the Lloyd’s market.
