Mortality Improvement and Company Practices
July 9, 2020
Recently the Society of Actuaries launched its Mortality and Longevity Strategic Research Program (MLSRP) to provide relevant industry research to inform the profession on the latest trends impacting mortality and longevity. In this webcast, presenters will provide the results of a recent MLSRP sponsored multi-country survey on mortality improvement practices of life insurance companies. Research on historical U.S. population mortality improvement, including analyses by causes of death and by county category, will be discussed.
At the conclusion of the webcast, attendees will be able to:
- Describe the goals of the SOA Mortality and Longevity Strategic Research Program
- Better understand what life insurance companies in Canada and U.S. are doing regarding their mortality improvement assumptions
- Better understand historical U.S. population mortality improvement

Predictive Analytics: The New Way to Forecast Mortality
July 10, 2020
The presenters will review investment trends, drivers, data sources and uses of predictive analytics and how it is transforming the life underwriting process. They will zero in on data being used (client + 3rd party), technology infrastructure requirements and modeling approaches. They will cover: predicting underwriting outcomes, building a mortality model, using the mortality model to stratify risk and predict risk classes.
At the conclusion of the webcast, attendees will:
- Be aware of the depth and breadth of predictive modeling across large and medium sized companies and the forces driving this new way to predict mortality outcomes
- Have an understanding of how a predictive-model based strategy starts with outcomes and uses modeling techniques to identify data characteristics most likely to produce those outcomes
- See that predictive analytics is not limited by what is already known and may discover new predictors of mortality
