12:30pm Registration
1:00-4:00pm: Four exciting sessions covering the following topics:


What if Mortality Stops Improving?

Future mortality improvement has been a common assumption in life insurance and annuity pricing and forecasting for many years. However, experience over the last decade suggests this might be an assumption that merits reconsideration in the United States. This presentation will provide insight on factors that impact mortality improvement trends and discuss why insurers may want to reevaluate product designs to better manage the associated mortality risk. We also introduce a product idea with this in mind, where premiums are based on a life expectancy index and insurers share the risk (and opportunity) of mortality improvement with policyholders.


Bias Session!

Join Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts leaders Chris Lassonde, FSA, VP of Provider Contracting Finance, and Wei Ying, Director of Performance Analytics, as they explore how BCBSMA promotes health equity within value based care (VBC). Learn about innovative Equity Incentive Measures and gain practical insights on VBC principles, equity measurement methods, negotiation strategies, and provider support initiatives in this concise 45-minute session. This session qualifies for bias credit. Don't miss this opportunity to glean wisdom from leaders driving impactful change in healthcare equity.


An Onshore Introduction to Offshore Reinsurance

Offshore reinsurance has been one of the hottest topics in insurance over the past several years. But what really is it, and why is it such a popular option for companies looking to offload risk? In this session, we’ll discuss the basics of offshore reinsurance, the latest industry trends, and the modeling techniques that companies are employing to quantify this risk.
