A heightened awareness of the aging population means that all parties have to closely track and monitor their longevity assumptions and developments. This ensures appropriate longevity bases are used in pricing and reserving for longevity risk.
It has also spurred a trend to de-risk, bringing new entrants to the bulk annuity and pension buy-out market, including insurance and reinsurance companies and investment banks, as well as increasing the appetite for longevity risk only deals such as longevity swaps.
Longevity risk is fast emerging as a financial sector in its own right and this new book from Risk Books, provides cutting edge practitioner insight and research around longevity risk in a practical and accessible way.
Edited by Emma McWilliam and drawing on the views of leading industry experts from insurance, reinsurance, capital markets and legal backgrounds “Longevity Risk” provides a 360° view of the market.
