Longevity Risk, or the risk that members live longer than expected, is sneaking up the agenda for every plan sponsor and has become a key risk that needs to be understood.

In this session, Tom Ault will delve into what longevity risk is and how it manifests itself in pension plans and how it compares to the other risks within the plan. He will discuss practical innovative steps that sponsors can take to understand, measure and ultimately manage the longevity risk within their plan. The presentation will draw on the practical experiences and analysis performed by Canadian pension plan sponsors as well as global case studies on how to manage longevity risk.
