The workforce of today and tomorrow must count on longer lives and deferred retirement, while at the same time it is taking on increased responsibility for managing retirement risk. This volume explores new ways to think about, manage, and finance longevity risk, capital market risk, model risk, andregulatory risk.This volume offers an in-depth analysis of the "black swans" that threaten private and public pensions around the world.
