The Ageing Population MIG focused on the financial and actuarial implications of an ageing population from a public interest standpoint. The group held its last meeting in 2013


The group's work mainly focused on the financial and actuarial implications of demography in the public interest.

  • Keeping abreast of issues affecting demography and the financial implications to the UK population, and keeping members up-to-date on upcoming research, events and news
  • Raising awareness of the opportunities available to actuaries in this area and the values actuaries can contribute
  • Keeping abreast of all related Government initiatives and participating in consultations to help influence Government policy
  • Carrying out research and contributing to debate on demography issues in the public interest.  The group will work with the Institute and Faculty and other external organisations and professions to achieve this


The group was led by chair Andrew Bryan.

  • Deborah Cooper
  • Adrian Gallop
  • Aldo Mendieta
  • Joynur Rahman
  • Colin Redman
  • Tony Salter
  • Aidan Smith


For 16 years, the group was successful in promoting ageing population issues always from a public interest standpoint, holding three conferences (each being able to attract well known speakers, including Frank Field and Andrew Dilnot), sponsoring a series of papers, linking up with outside organisations, in particular the International Longevity Centre, and publishing the book ‘100 years of State Pension.’

    We continue to live in a world of global uncertainty. Survival depends on our ability to simultaneously navigate through the diverse root-causes, ranging from: the consequences of Climate Change; transitioning to Net Zero; increased inflationary pressures and supply chain issues; to self-imposed changes in regulatory requirements. CILA 2022 focuses on these challenges to ensure we continue to be informed and remain battle ready, as well as showcasing highlights of recent CMI outputs.

    This webinar will cover:

    • Some background on the risks of misselling in an ESG context, including the DWS case

    • Achieving positive impact is a strong antidote to the risks of greenwashing or ESG misselling, however this risks having a tension with fiduciary responsibilities

    • This tension can be resolved with a concept called Universal Ownership

    • Under Universal ownership, investors have an appetite to make a loss in order to achieve positive impact, and yet still have no compromise on their fiduciary responsibilities

    This session will focus on the transformation roadmap of the healthcare sector in KSA and the role of actuarial capabilities in enhancing its evolution to the desired end stage as per the objectives of the Vision 2030. The discussion will focus how the system has evolved so far and shed light on  the expected future changes. Through examining  the transformation, we will highlight how the sector is and can use actuarial  expertise to not only assist with this transformation but also use basic actuarial principles to identify the key risks and their respective mitigation strategies.
