Pension funds and annuity providers need to effectively manage the longevity risk of their members. Members may live longer than expected or accounted for in the actuarial calculations involved in the provision of pensions. Mismanaged longevity risk can deteriorate finances, cause bankruptcy and expose members to the risk of losing their pensions. To safeguard against this risk, pension funds and annuity providers must provision for future improvements in mortality and life expectancy. Further, effective management of longevity risk must be supported by the regulatory framework.
The publication assess how pension funds, annuity providers such as life insurance companies, and the regulatory framework incorporate future improvements in mortality and life expectancy. The study will examine the regulatory framework as well as the actual market practice, with the purpose of identifying best practices, introducing policy recommendations and providing guidelines to improve how longevity risk is managed when calculating pensions and annuity payments.
