Health and Retirement Conference 2015

From:22 Oct 2015 - 08:30
To:23 Oct 2015 - 17:30
Location:Leo, RWS Convention Centre

Dear members,


The Singapore Actuarial Society will be hosting our Health & Retirement Conference with the theme "Health and Old Age Security – Planning For The Next 50 Years" on 22nd-23rd October 2015. Organised by a joint Health and Retirement Conference Committee, the 2-day conference will be held at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore with the aim to foster increased knowledge sharing and interactions amongst actuaries and insurance professionals in the region.


The call for papers/presentations is now open! We are inviting timely, relevant and high-quality presentation contributions from all members.



The health related topics might include ideas such as challenges for product design in a moving landscape of public health insurance and regulations, adapting medical underwriting practices to the digitalization of sales, as well as new insights into traditional issues such as performance monitoring and accurate reserving.



Ahead of the forthcoming publication of the CPF Advisory Panel’s review, expected by the end of 2015, retirement issues to be considered at our conference might include such matters as pre-retirement investments, post retirement income security and corporate sponsored plans.



Naturally, the combination of the two actuarial practice areas should lead to lively discussion on post-retirement health care, an important topic which gets regular coverage in the media, especially in the letters pages.


These ideas should only act as a guide and are not meant to be exhaustive. Other interesting and relevant topics will also be considered by the joint committee.


To express your interest in presenting at this conference, please send an excerpt, a brief outline of the presentation as well as the brief biography of the presenter electronically to me at at on or before  20th July 2015. Selected presenters will be notified via email at a later date.


We welcome any thoughts or suggestions and are looking forward to your participation at the Health and Retirement Conference. If you have any clarifications and questions regarding the conference please send your enquiries to Patsy Lau at



Thank you.
