Several challenges arise in estimating the liabilities and assets needed for pensions provision. The UK Government has increased the State Pension Age to reflect longevity. For developing countries, achieving reliable estimates of life expectancy is not easy. Actuaries, economists and statisticians use varied definitions of risk and methods for estimation and forecasting. Disagreement centres on concepts of risk and prudence.
This meeting aired some slow-burn economic and social issues, to initiate a more co-ordinated approach and to dispel some widely-held misapprehensions.
Recorded audio of the presentations will be available under each speaker abstract at the bottom of this page approximately one month after the meeting has taken place.
