Charting mortality
trends: signposts for an uncertain journey

Our report analyses recent trends in mortality and the emerging evidence from the ONS that there have been fewer deaths reported in 2019 so far than in recent years.

Understanding and managing longevity risk is a key part of journey planning for a pension scheme. Adopting up-to-date projections which allow for the latest trends in life expectancies may have important implications for your scheme.
