ISSA International Conference

18th ISSA International Conference of Social Security Actuaries and Statisticians

16 – 18 September 2015 Budapest, Hungary

The 18th ISSA International Conference of Social Security Actuaries and Statisticians will take place in Budapest, Hungary, from 16 to 18 September 2015, at the invitation of the Central Administration of the National Pension Insurance.

At a time of heightened scrutiny of social security operations, the need for the expertise of actuaries has arguably never been greater. In recent years, the role of actuaries has widened to include not only actuarial valuations and an assessment of the sustainability of social security systems, but also the analysis of the adequacy of benefits, the investment options for reserve funds, the assessment of long-term care and health systems and the economic and social impacts of social security provision.

The Conference is aimed specifically at actuaries, statisticians, economists and financial experts from ISSA member organizations and international organizations, and will also be of interest to other senior professionals and managers. 

The Conference will feature contributions from all ISSA regions and will reflect the diverse challenges experienced by social security institutions around the world and the role of actuarial work in addressing these. 
The Conference sessions will focus on the following topics:
  • Sustainability of retirement systems: A central European perspective.
  • ISSA-ILO Guidelines on Actuarial Work for Social Security: Supporting good practice in actuarial work.
  • Analysis of the social and economic impacts of social security.
  • Focus on investment issues including the issue of long-term returns, socially responsible investment and the risks related to different asset choices.

The International Conference is open to ISSA members and invited participants. The working languages are English, French, German and Spanish. Interpretation will also be provided in Hungarian.
