Emma McWilliam returns with the highly anticipated, and fully updated, second edition of Longevity Risk. McWilliam, alongside two new co-editors (and Hymans Robertson colleagues) Howie Timothy and Matt Thomas, has assembled a roster of leading experts in the field of longevity.
Managing longevity risk requires an understanding of a wide range of issues, from the measurement of longevity risk for pricing, reserving and setting aside capital, to the management of risk through de-risking, reinsurance and capital markets solutions. These diverse topics are assiduously explored in this text by longevity thought leaders and practitioners, whose extensive experience cuts across disciplines, from (re)insurance to capital markets, from law to medicine and academia, as well as across the major longevity markets globally.
