The work of actuaries is on display at an exhibition at the Royal Society in Carlton House Terrace, near London's Piccadilly. 'Life beyond measure: a short history of longevity' opened at the end of January and runs until June this year.
It considers the medical and scientific breakthroughs made by many of the fellows of the Royal Society that improved medical care and social conditions to extend lives, along with the work of actuaries in measuring them since the profession was first chartered in 1868.
The exhibition casts a spotlight on longevity: what was, what is and some thoughts on what yet may be.
The IFoA is proud to host the exhibition in collaboration with the Royal Society and we hope that visitors to London will take the opportunity to view it.
