Invitation to attend a lecture organised by AG Insurance - 27/09/2022 (2 CPD)

You are kindly invited to physically attend a lecture organised by AG Insurance that will take place in the Auditorium of AG Insurance, AG Campus, Nieuwbrug 17 in Brussels on Tuesday 27 September 2022 from 11h30 till 13h30.

Topic of the presentation: "Assessing the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on a stochastic multi-population mortality model". .

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Katrien Antonio

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the way we live and work. For example: 

  • more widespread work-from-home arrangements
  • the surge in e-commerce
  • changes in criteria for choosing a home (garden, home office space, etc.)

The insurance industry has not escaped the impact either, amongst others in the application of mortality tables. 

The Li and Lee mortality model, a standard for projecting mortality in Belgium and the Netherlands, is calibrated on annual death counts and exposures at the level of individual ages. However, this type of mortality data are typically reported with a significant delay preventing a timely evaluation of the impact of a pandemic data point. Although other data sources that publish more frequently are available, the mortality data is then collected in age buckets.

Professor Katrien Antonio will be sharing her views on the subject and she will present recent research on the impact of a pandemic data point on the calibration of a stochastic multi-population mortality projection model and its resulting projections for future mortality rates (Robben J., Antonio K. & Devriendt S., 2022, Risks).

Moreover, ongoing work on dealing with mortality shocks in a stochastic multi-population mortality model will be sketched.

After the presentation, a networking lunch will be offered by AG Insurance. Professor Katrien Antonio will also be available to answer any questions you may have.

Registration possible only till 20 September 2022 because of food and beverages ordering.
