1999 BSc Economics with Actuarial Studies
Scott Latham

‘I studied Economics with Actuarial Studies at Southampton from 1996 to 1999. I enjoyed the course because it gave me the chance to study lots of subjects; in addition to the core courses I took units in management, German and even astronomy. The course gave me five exemptions towards professional actuarial exams. When I left Southampton, I went to work for actuarial consultants Watson Wyatt, where I completed the rest of the exams in 2003. Currently my job involves auditing actuarial work throughout Watson Wyatt's offices – I am off to India shortly. I felt it was important to give something financial back to Southampton now I am in work. Oxford and Cambridge always seem to have loads of money floating round from alumni, so I wanted to do my bit for Southampton. I chose to donate to the Asthma and Allergies Fund since, while I was at Southampton, I was diagnosed with several food allergies – I therefore have a vested interest in research in this area.’
