Managing Systematic Mortality Risk with Group Self Pooling and Annuitisation Schemes
Group Self-annuitisation Schemes (GSAs), or Pooled Annuity Schemes, are designed to share uncertain future mortality experience including systematic improvements. They have been proposed because of the significant uncertainty of future mortality improvement on pension and annuity costs. The challenges for designing group pooled schemes include the decreasing average payments when mortality improves significantly, the decreasing numbers in the pool at the older ages and the dependence of systematic mortality improvements across different ages of members in the pool.
