The Eighth International Longevity Risk and Capital Markets Solutions Conference will be held in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, on Friday, September 7 and Saturday, September 8, 2012.
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 securitization are critical components in the management of longevity risk. Leading international industry and academic minds 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.
The key theme of Longevity 8 is "The New Paradigm of Longevity in Pension Risk Solutions". Confirmed keynote speakers include:
Andrew Cairns (Heriot-Watt University)
Stephen Coles (Gerontology Research Group)
Malcolm Hamilton (Mercer)
Eytan Sheshinski (Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
Eric Stallard (Center for Population Health and Aging, Duke University)
