Institutional Investment 9th Asia Conference on Pensions and Retirement Planning 2-3 September, 2013 - Singapore
Theme: "Rethinking Retirement Planning – The Time To Act Is Now"

Pensions is a hot issue and the pensions debate rages on. With Asia facing the ageing population challenges, and people living longer and outliving their savings, healthcare for the old is also becoming a critical issue in retirement planning. Is there a way forward for employers, employees and governments to co-operate closely to find lasting solutions? With rising affluence, the cost of pensions and provision for retirement are ever increasing as the people expect not only a secure but high quality of life for retirement.
  • What are the real feasibilities of the pensions market?
  • How can it respond meaningfully to these massive challenges?
  • What needs to be done to ensure that the financial crisis and investment market volatility aside, the pensions polices of today are stable and will not add to the yoke of future generations?
  • Is there light at the end of the tunnel?
  • What reforms are urgently needed?
Asia Insurance Review’s 9th Asia Pensions Conference will map out the sustainable solutions to these tough questions to make pensions safe, sound, and responsive to the needs of the retirees of the day with longevity being stretched. Whole reviewing lessons from the best of the class in wealth management and pension reforms, the two-day conference will look at a road map for the future of pensions including from the regulatory, financial, technology, risk management, risk mitigation and operational standpoints as well as looking at the dynamic role of the individual, employers and governments in the pensions’ search for a panacea.

At the event, Dr. Frederic Blanc-Brude, Research Director at EDHEC Risk Institute—Asia, will be delivering a presentation entitled, "The Need to Design Scientific Investment Solutions to Solve Asia’s Pension Crisis", in which he will examine the solutions that can be designed to deliver lifecycle wealth that benefits both current and future generations of retirees.

Dr. Blanc-Brude will also be participating in a panel discussion on current pension practices in Asia and the challenge to meet the changing retirement needs and future of pensions with sustainable solutions with a 360 degree vision including regulatory, financial, technology, product development, risk management, healthcare, investments etc.:
  • Mapping out solutions for employers, employees and governments
  • Cost of pensions and provision for future, quality of life, pre-retirement accumulation and post-retirement solutions
  • Overcoming the challenge of increasing longevity
  • Implications for the insurance industry
