CONFERENCE: Sixth International Longevity Risk and Capital Markets Solutions Conference
Thursday 9 and Friday 10 September 2010 Bondi Beach at the Swiss-Grand Resort & Spa Australia
Longevity risk is an increasingly important risk to recognize, quantify and manage for both pension plan and annuity providers, as well as for individuals. Getting the right trend improvements in life expectancy is the key to managing this risk. However, this has proven to be difficult to realize in the past; even official agencies have systematically underestimated previous mortality improvements. Pension plan and annuity providers are beginning to question whether longevity risk is a risk they should be assuming. The capital markets are beginning to offer solutions for managing and unloading longevity risk.
During this two day international event, leading international industry and academic minds will meet and discuss not only longevity risk, but also the type of instruments needed by pension funds and insurance companies to hedge this risk. The latest developments in longevity as an asset class will also be considered.
