Future Mortality Impacts of the Pandemic joined by speakers from the Society of Actuaries in Ireland COVID-19 Action Group
Date and Time: Thursday, 29/04/2021 - 16:00 - 17:30
The immediate impact of COVID-19 has been thoroughly monitored, assessed and publicised. Research has (quite rightly) focussed on how we, as a society, deal with the immediate challenges that it presents. But as hope grows that we can bring the pandemic under control, what can we expect in terms of longer term impacts on mortality? In this session, Joseph and Andrew will consider the challenges facing actuaries needing to set long-term mortality assumptions, consider what we already know, and where some of the greatest areas of uncertainty lie.
The Society of Actuaries in Ireland has carried out analysis work on excess mortality from COVID in Ireland and this may be of interest to UK members for comparison purposes.
Speakers: Andrew Gaches, Hymans Robertson, Joseph Lu, Legal & General and Caroline Twomey
