The white paper focuses on the impact of increasing longevity on company pensions and discusses possible solutions.
Over the past century and a half, life expectancy has steadily increased. However, as people have come to enjoy longer lives, our pension systems have not been adjusted accordingly. In particular, retirement ages and funding assumptions for pensions do not yet fully reflect the impact of longer-lived populations. As a result, state-run social plans, company-sponsored plans and private retirement savings are facing unprecedented challenges.
What is in the white paper ‘Longevity and pensions’?
In the latest AEGON Global Pensions white paper, Chris Madsen and Martijn Tans focus on the impact of increasing longevity on company-sponsored defined benefit plans, and discusses possible solutions. In the paper, the following questions are addressed.
- What are the sources of pension plan risk?
- How can a pension fund assess the longevity risk it is exposed to?
- How can a pension fund protect itself from longevity risk?
- What is a fair price for protection?
The paper also provides seven guidelines on implementing longevity swaps.
