Make a date for pensions

Choosing population projections for public policy is the theme of a joint conference for the Profession and The International Longevity Centre. The conference will address four questions about mortality knowledge:

1 What do we know about mortality developments given recent uncertainties underlying projections?
2 How should we make sense of different viewpoints about future mortality?
3 What are the implications of different mortality projections – including their uncertainties – for policy?
4 How should government govern, sponsor and use mortality knowledge in policymaking in the public, financial and voluntary sectors?

High-profile speakers include: Professor Sir Michael Marmot, Mike O’Brien MP (pictured), the minister of state for pensions reform, and Richard Willets.

The conference is sponsored by Swiss Re and will take place on 29 October 2008 at Staple Inn, London. For more details please contact Hannah Bolton on +44 (0)20 7632 2145 or hannah.bolton@actuaries.org.uk
