Description

Due to demographic changes and the resulting challenges for government-run pay-as-you-go systems, the importance of funded private or occupational old age provision will increase in the future. The consequences of the financial crisis, the low interest rate environment as well as the solvency requirements following Solvency II, ask for new concepts in many markets, especially – but not only – with regard to products that integrate guarantees into the saving process.

In order to support you and your colleagues with the related current challenges, EAA are happy to announce their Seminar “New Life Products in a Low Interest World" which is organised in co-operation with the Hellenic Actuarial Society on 30/31 March 2020 in Athens, Greece.

Early-bird offer which is € 840.00 plus 24% VAT for registrations by 30 January 2020.

After this date, the fee will be € 990.00 plus 24% VAT.

Agenda
