- identification and quantification of the key factors affecting mortality/longevity such as lifestyle choices, medical conditions and/or interventions
- modelling of temporal changes in the factors affecting morbidity and mortality
- evaluation of plausible scenarios in mortality trends due to particular medical advances or lifestyle changes on the population of insureds of relevance to actuarial community
- tools to forecast longevity risk of a book based on realistic scenarios of uptake of various health behaviours and/or interventions, or of particular disruptions to population health.
- ARC Webinar Series 2018 – Monday 17 September, 9am and 5pm (BST)
Following the successful launch of last year’s webinar series, the Actuarial Research Centre (ARC) is running a further series of webinars this Autumn to showcase its largest cutting-edge research programmes, addressing some of the significant challenges in actuarial science.
Join this webinar to hear more from the Principal Investigator of this research programme, Professor Elena Kulinskaya (University of East Anglia) and Co-Investigator Nigel Wright (Aviva).By joining this webinar you will learn about the objectives of this research programme and some of the early developments since its commencement in 2016. You will be able to ask questions via a live feed to our speakers, joining in the debate wherever you are located in the world.
These webinars are designed to encourage a two-way dialogue and participation on the issues currently being researched. These events are eligible for CPD and will run twice at 9am and 5pm (BST). We will also be recording the live webinars and they will be available as recordings on the IFoA website, shortly after the event.

- ARC Sessional: How Medical Advances and Health Interventions Will Shape Future Longevity
- International Congress of Actuaries, Berlin 2018
- ARC Impact Workshop: The impact of medical advances and health interventions on longevity and population projections
Thursday 17 May, Staple Inn Hall, London
Delivered in partnership with the University of East Anglia (UEA) and the ESRC funded Business and Local Government Data Research Centre, this invitation only impact workshop, brought together a wide range of stakeholders to explore how medical advances and health interventions could impact on longevity and population projections, and to consider potential outcomes for public policy and business/industry models, across a range of sectors.
Jules Constantinou (President-elect, IFoA) chaired the event and Professor David Hand, Imperial College London and past president of the Royal Statistical Society, introduced the day’s events. The audience also heard from experts from Aviva, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, Legal and General and the Office for National Statistics (ONS). The day closed with a discussion panel, chaired by Dame Karen Dunnell, past Director of the ONS. Presentations from the day are available to view on the research programme’s outputs webpage.
Professor Elena Kulinskaya, the Principal Investigator for this research programme was delighted with the day’s success and stated that “the input at this ARC impact workshop, from such a broad range of experts, will provide hugely valuable insight to the research programme".
The key highlights from the impact workshop will be posted here soon.
