Primary Competency

Technical Skills & Analytical Problem Solving


The Society of Actuaries (SOA) has funded research with respect to the impact that aging may have on asset values and deflation. In the first part of this webcast presenters will review the literature regarding the likelihood that the retirement of the baby boom generation may lead to an asset meltdown. They will then present results of research regarding whether aging may be deflationary.

The SOA is partnering on another project with two other professional actuarial associations, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and the Canadian Institute of Actuaries, as well as with academic researchers in Canada and the United Kingdom to study the impact that population aging has on asset values and to project the implications for pension plans. In the final part of the webcast, models and solution techniques being used by the research team will be described and some preliminary results presented.
