As part of Societe Generale's series of Meet the Experts presentations, Jeff Mulholland discusses longevity.
Longevity risk is caused by uncertainty in the future rate of population mortality improvement. Increases in human longevity caused by medical advancements, healthier lifestyles and emerging technologies such as regenerative medicine will dramatically increase the life expectancy, and therefore the retirement needs, of the world’s elderly. This is why Societe Generale has developed an innovative longevity risk hedging solution for insurers and reinsurers that are strongly exposed to longevity risk. This Societe Generale solution provides a powerful risk management tool and may be able to alleviate certain capital constraints. Societe Generale has taken an approach to developing the longevity risk market with the goal of fostering a large, transparent and efficient market for transacting this risk globally.
