  • Our latest research examines the potential effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on long-term mortality rates and how this in turn will influence trustee decision making in the years ahead.

    Various medical, economic and social factors will determine future mortality improvements. For instance, advancements in vaccine, greater public health awareness and a healthier lifestyle through home working may increase life expectancy rates.
