How should pension liabilities be valued? Risk aversion and demographic uncertainty

Discussion meeting

Location

The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG

Overview

Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Jane Hutton and Professor Saul Jacka.

The Royal Society, Carlton House Terrace

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 will air 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 on this page after the meeting has taken place. The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available shortly.
