We are getting older as people. Increasing life expectancy has a huge impact on us as individuals, on society as a whole and also on insurers. How will longevity develop in the coming years? What differences do we see between countries and where do they come from? And how do we ensure that we not only get older, but also get healthier and ensure the ability to finance an aging society?

During the XpertSession “Longevity – Living till Eternity” we discuss the various aspects of this increasingly important topic. Guest speaker Mathijs Bouman will answer the above questions and will give us an insight into his view how we could deal with the corresponding challenges that we are facing.

Hannover Re presents innovations and international developments in the field of longevity, life insurance and reinsurance. As an insurer, how can you respond to longevity with products and services and what can you contribute to a healthier individual lifestyle?
