MEDIA ADVISORY: Leading global longevity experts convene in Washington, D.C. to talk importance of financial wellness in an aging society


The foremost minds on longevity from around the globe – including representation from industry, academia and government – are gathering in the nation’s capital this week to talk about the current assessment of longevity risk, market and government developments and the responses by pension funds and insurance companies to manage this risk.

Now in its 15th year, The International Longevity Risk and Capital Markets Solutions Conference, organized by the Pensions Institute at Cass Business School, has continued to summon the brightest minds from Europe, North America and Asia each September to discuss the latest trends and developments impacting the industry. Prudential has sponsored this conference series since 2011.

Key themes of Longevity 15 will include mortality trends and forecasts, longevity risk and inequalities, longevity hedging solutions, sustainability of pension systems, financial well-being and life settlements.
