BRUSSELS 16 november 2016
The Actuarial Association of Europe
(AAE) is presenting a seminar in Brussels on the
topic of 'The Ageing of the EU - implications for Pensions'.
In March 2016 the AAE published a discussion paper on this
topic. The discussion paper reviews some of the key features of the
population projections used in the 2015 Ageing Report, comments on
some of the areas of uncertainty and potential controversy, and
then considers what the projections tell us about future
sustainability and adequacy of pension systems in the EU. The
discussion paper aims to inform decisionmakers and interested
parties throughout the EU and particularly in Brussels. The AAE
suggests that the range of issues regarding the major risks to
future pension adequacy, and how to mitigate them, merit special
and increased attention in the next cycle of this analytical work.
The AAE also intends to carry out further research into the way in
which different mortality tables are being used for projecting
pension costs and also for driving policies of increasing
The seminar will discuss the main conclusions of the '2015
Ageing Report' and the 'Pension Adequacy Report', published in 2015
by the European Commission. It can be expected that the ageing in
Europe will have a great impact not only on pensions and social
security systems but also the demand for bespoke life and health
insurance covers and the demand for employment to employees
reaching or beyond normal retirement age.
The target audience is senior actuaries, governors/trustees of
pension institutions, CROs and CEOs of (re-) insurance
undertakings, pensions and insurance regulators and supervisors,
politicians and other European policy-makers. The seminar will
include keynote speeches by Anne Drouin, Chief, Public Finance,
Actuarial Services and Statistics Branch of the ILO Social
Protection Dept. and Fritz Von Nordheim, Deputy head of Unit C2, DG
Employment and Social Affairs, and a panel session moderated by
Falco Valkenburg, Chair of the AAE Pensions Committee.
The seminar is free of charge, and will take place at 16.30 CET
on Wednesday 16 November 2016 at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel,
Wolvengracht 47, Brussels, followed by a drinks reception.
Places are available at a first-come, first served basis. Please
