Longevity Workshop Hosted by PwC
Organised by CEPAR in conjunction with the International Actuarial Association Mortality Working Group
Wednesday, 15 February 2017, PwC Sydney Office
Longevity risk has been a major focus of pensions plans, governments and insurers over recent years as individuals live longer than expected and an increasing proportion of the population move into the older ages. This requires social and financial solutions to finance ageing costs including pensions and aged care. A critical aspect of this is understanding the nature of older age mortality, mortality heterogeneity and implications for risk modelling and annuity product design. Modelling of health status and understanding the implications for long term care costs are also crucial. This workshop focuses on older age mortality, modelling mortality and health status, heterogeneity and frailty, as well as incorporating improvement trends and uncertainty. An R software package that can easily be used to fit mortality models is also introduced. It brings together actuarial experts from around the world, along with CEPAR researchers, to provide a unique and in–depth analysis of these important issues relevant for both practitioners and researchers.
Who should attend
This is a limited attendance workshop designed for those who will benefit from a deeper understanding of older age mortality and modelling longevity and health status. It will be of direct relevance to actuaries and researchers involved with superannuation, life insurance, health and aged care as well as analysts and managers in industry and government responsible for retirement policy, product design of life annuities, aged care and related financial products.
