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

    A panel discussion with investment representatives discussing the impact of investment on climate change and vice versa.

    This event is part of The Road to Glasgow: IFoA’s Sustainability Thought Leadership Series which will provide a platform for prominent contributors so that our members and others can understand the perspectives of a wide range of parties interested in the climate debate.

  • Spaces available

    Climate change is one of the greatest risks facing our world today. Addressing it will require multi-faceted solutions. Through this panel session, we will explore the different levers that can be used to meet net-zero targets including climate science and data, government engagement, and mobilising green finance.

  • Spaces available

    How governments and societies collectively respond to the climate crisis is increasingly being analysed through the lens of intergenerational fairness. Our expert panel will assess and explore the extent to which inter-generous fairness is being considered in climate policies, the lessons from those countries who are leading the way on fairness and justice in climate interventions, and more.

  • The Growth Mindset for Actuaries

    13 October 2021 - 8 December 2021

    Spaces available

    This practical course is aimed at actuaries at any stage of their career who want to develop their own growth mindset and apply it to their work setting and personal or professional lifelong learning. The content of the course builds on the lecture given by Dr Helen Wright on Growth Mindset as part of the President’s 2021 Lecture series, and will be delivered over a period of 2 months, from mid-October to early December.

  • Spaces available

    The climate crisis and the degradation of our planet will affect societies everywhere. How we address these threats will require solutions that transcend borders. As a global profession, the actuarial community is well-placed to consider and propose effective risk management solutions to help manage the climate crisis.

  • Spaces available

    Content will be aimed at all actuaries looking to understand the issues surrounding mental health in insurance and in particular those looking to ensure products and processes widen access for, and are most useful to, those experiencing periods of poor mental health.
