Bulk Annuities and Longevity Swaps

The new Bulk Annuities and Longevity Swaps MIG is relevant to the broad range of actuaries interested in the fast growing activity of de-risking pension plans through (primarily) bulk annuities or longevity swaps. This group will likely include actuaries at consultancies, insurers, reinsurers, banks and asset managers, especially as this area now touches most UK pension schemes and is an area in which increasing numbers of actuaries are specialising

The Bulk Annuities and Longevity Swaps MIG will cover and offer:

  • Potential Education/CPD opportunities organised by the Pensions Board sub-committee.
  • An opportunity to share case studies/best practices.
  • Communication of new and developing ideas in the de-risking market.
  • Networking amongst members.
  • Create a forum for use by members

The above will be delivered through various means including guest speakers on topical matters.

The MIG may touch on areas related to bulk annuity or longevity swaps but these will not be a primary focus. Examples could include trivial commutation and transfer value exercises, asset strategies and transition, benefit changes etc.

This MIG has a managing committee to develop and deliver its objectives. 

Chair: Akash Rooprai
Members: 12

    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.
