STUART MCDONALD is Head of Demographic Assumptions and Methodology for Lloyds Banking Group. He plays an active role within the actuarial profession, currently serving on the Executive Committee of the Continuous Mortality Investigation. He founded and co-chairs the COVID-19 Actuaries Response Group. Stuart was awarded an MBE for services to Public Health in the 2022 New Year Honours
