The key theme of Longevity 10 is "Why longevity risk transfer makes economic sense (for insurers and investors)".

The ageing population and increases in longevity have drawn attention to the management of longevity risk in pension funds, life insurers and health insurers. Governments face the challenge of financing an ageing population with longer life spans and providing an environment conducive to private market solutions. Reinsurers and financial market innovations such as securitisation are critical components in the management of longevity risk.

Leading international industry and academic representatives, as well as policy makers, will meet and discuss not only the assessment of longevity risk, but also the market and government developments and responses needed by pension funds and insurance companies to manage this risk.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:

  • Guy Coughlan (Pacific Global Advisors)
  • Alan Fine (Boston University)
  • Amy Kessler (Prudential)
  • John Kiff (IMF)
  • Moshe Milevsky  (York University)
  • Angus Macdonald  (Heriot Watt University)
  • Jeff Mullholland, Managing Director and Head of Insurance and Pension Solutions, Americas for Société Générale)
  • Brent Walder, (Chief Actuary for Prudential Retirement)

A Special Issue of the Journal of Risk and Insurance will publish a selection of the best academic papers presented at the conference. Preference will be given to those papers that address the theme of this year's conference: "Why longevity risk transfer makes economic sense (for insurers and investors)". The closing date for submissions to the Special Issue will be 31 December 2014. All submitted papers will be subject to the rigorous reviewing process of the Journal of Risk and Insurance.
