Trend and Impact Roundtable: COVID-19

COVID-19 has shown us the true meaning of disruption, and its impact on long term life expectancy is yet to be fully understood. Beyond the disease itself, how will our response to it – namely lockdowns, economic downturn and neglect of other health conditions – impact human life expectancy in the future? This session is co-hosted by an expert in the field (Trend Host) and an actuary (Impact Host) and is designed as a conversation between intelligent people which draws out both what is new, and how it will affect longevity in the real world.

Webinar: Longevity risk transfer in an uncertain world

The transfer of defined benefit pension risk has withstood the COVID-19 pandemic so far, with the UK market worth more than £50 billion in 2020. However, as we move out of the pandemic the market is likely to become more difficult to navigate, as the widespread financial and health benefits begin to realise their full impact. This session looks at how to navigate longevity risk transfer during and after times of great uncertainty.
