The key themes of Longevity 12 will be product innovation, sidecars, and data reliability challenges and timeliness.

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 from different fields, 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.

Registration is now opened and accommodation and travel details are posted.

A Special Issue of the North American Actuarial Journal 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. The closing date for submissions to the Special Issue will be 31 December 2016. All submitted papers will be subject to the rigorous reviewing process of the North American Actuarial Journal.
