developments in mortality and longevity.

CMI Executive Committee, opened the seminar with an update on
the investigations the committee are currently pursuing on
Louise commented, "The Continuous Mortality Investigation

are an independent committee providing mortality and sickness
tables for use by
UK life insurers and pension funds. It was of particular
interest to hear about the challenges the Committee faces in

for lives aged 95 years and above, but experience across insurers
can differ considerably"

Keeping abreast with UK developments provides SL with a broader
overview of the issues, and supports further development of our
extensive due diligence processes we perform on US
