15/16 Oct 2015 in Prague
New Life Products in a Low Interest World
Organised by the EAA - European Actuarial Academy GmbH
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. These changes have lead to a lot of product developments within the segment of old age provision. Life insurers in some markets nowadays offer a great variety of products. The globalization and cross-border activities have stimulated the transfer of ideas and product innovations between the markets, especially within the deregulated EU-market with its principle of single license over the last years. But the consequences of the financial crisis as well as the new 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.
This seminar will therefore demonstrate modern life insurance products with a special focus on innovations in the life insurance markets.
The seminar is suited for actuaries or actuarial trainees who are directly or indirectly involved in issues related to developing or controlling life insurance products, such as product development actuaries, risk managers, marketing managers, supervisors and auditors. Since the focus of the seminar will be on innovative products, the main target group are people concerned with or being interested in product development.
During this seminar, you will not need a laptop.
