As COVID-19 spreads, financial institutions face medium-to-long-term consequences that will take time to understand.
Contributions are invited for a special issue of Annals of Actuarial Science (AAS) featuring research on managing the risk of mortality shocks. Examples of areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Direct effects on liabilities linked to mortality and longevity risks
- Capital market and insurance innovations for pandemic risk management
- Impact on the provision of, and demand for, healthcare
- Changes in economic activity, commodity and asset prices
- Increase in government debt and the effect on bond markets
- Changes in investor/policyholder behaviour
- Changes in regulation
- Preparing for the next pandemic.
The issue will be guest edited by Michel Dacorogna (University of Zurich), Runhuan Feng (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and Annamaria Olivieri (University of Parma).
Papers may be submitted from 1 January 2021 to 31 July 2021. The issue will appear in 2022, but all papers accepted for publication will be published as FirstView articles when produced.
