Longevity 16

Sixteenth International Longevity Risk and Capital Markets Solutions Conference

Thursday 9th and Friday 10th September 2021

Longevity 16 conference deferred until 2021

As a result of the uncertainties surrounding the transmission of the coronavirus, we have reluctantly decided to defer the Longevity 16 conference until 9-10 September 2021. It will still take place at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. The Journal of Demographic Economics has also agreed to defer the special issue until 2021.
This has been a difficult decision since it took a lot of effort to find the hotel and conference centre in the first place. We had not taken in account the fact the conference coincided with Formula 1 and most of the hotels with conference facilities were already fully booked.  We would therefore like to personally thank Zhu Wenjun, Zhang Jinggong and Valerie De Souza of Nanyang Technological University for the huge amount of effort they have devoted so far to making the conference a success.
We would also like to thank Amy Kessler of Prudential Financial for her generosity not only in providing Platinum sponsorship for the conference this year, but for also agreeing to match this again next year so that the conference is financially secure. We are also grateful to Hannover Re for agreeing to sponsor L16.
We are sorry for the inconvenience, but hope you all understand and we look forward to seeing you all in Singapore on 9-10 September 2021.
With best wishes and keep safe

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 representatives 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. Key themes of Longevity 16 will include  mortality trends and forecasts, longevity risk and inequalities, longevity-linked products and hedging solutions, and the sustainability of pension systems.

Keynote speakers include:

Amy Kessler - Prudential Financial
Douglas Anderson - Club Vita
Cord-Roland Rinke - Hannover Re
Professor Heather Booth – Australian National University
Yaniv Bertele - Vesttoo
Avery Michaelson – Longitude Solutions
Luca Tres – Securis Investment Partners
Guy Coughlan - USS
