Gareth Henry for Scholastic Progress
Alumnus Gareth Henry funded an undergraduate scholarship at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is a qualified UK actuary and graduated from the university in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science Degree with first-class honors in Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics. He will be offering mentoring and coaching to students on a regular basis to help enhance long-term career growth. Gareth Henry offers one scholarship per term along with career advice and help in choosing a job. He hopes that this will encourage students and show them what studying and achieving can do for them in the Actuarial Sciences. The scholarship will also help those students who otherwise might have had to give up on their dreams.
Presently Gareth Henry resides in New York and works in investor relations. He emphases the relevance of Actuarial Maths at Heriot-Watt University especially for students who hope to work in the field of finance. Gareth Henry knows that the programs and quantitative modeling lessons will be of use to students in the future among them machine learning, the understanding of technology and artificial intelligence. Students must progress along with the latest innovations in the field of finance to be a success in the future and land the job of their choice.
At Heriot-Watt the Actuarial Science degree is one of the few which has been accredited by the UK actuarial profession. The students who qualify as UK actuaries also have the possibility of getting credit with the Society of Actuaries in North America. This is a great opportunity for students with technical backgrounds who wish to get into the world of finance. The requirements for the Gareth Henry funded undergraduate scholarship are that the student must be from the U.K., must be enrolled in the Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics course and must be able to show the need for finance.
