Life Re Forum Innovation Series (Part 1): Climate Change and Life Insurance – sorting the wheat from the chaff
Have you ever wondered from which angle to tackle this seemingly all-pervasive topic of climate change so as to be able to understand how it relates to life insurance specifically?
In this talk we will try to sort the wheat from the chaff, by first looking at what is projected to happen (and more importantly, as you will learn, where), what consequences there are (and more importantly, as you will learn, for whom), and which are the most relevant ones for life insurance (and more importantly, as you will learn, why).
Actuarial projections of future mortality under climate change scenarios, although carried out by the author and briefly covered in the presentation, will not be the focus of the talk. Instead, it will aim to build a solid general understanding of the fundamental interacting elements. This can help in making actuarial risk-based assessments when it comes to climate change and life insurance.
