Life expectancy – new ways to assess the risk

Recorded: 25 October 2016

  • Overview
    • How long might your pension scheme members live for? Pensions are generally paid until death, so this is a big question for trustees and sponsors of DB pension schemes. And since no one can know precisely, this is a big risk.

      However, compared to where we were 15 years ago, there are a lot more tools available now to help trustees and sponsors understand these risks and take the best decisions.

      In this webinar we’ll take a look at ‘postcode profiling’, including the ‘Scotland effect’, as well as new modelling techniques available to help understand why and how fast life expectancy could increase.
