Deutsche Börse expands data offering on longevity

RELATED TOPICS​

Deutsche Börse is expanding its Xpect offering to include longevity data and indices from England and Wales.

In 2008, Deutsche Börse’s business segment Market Data & Analytics started delivering monthly data on life expectancy and mortality risks in Germany and the Netherlands, broken down according to region, year of birth and gender.

Xpect Data offers the most up-to-date figures for quantitative valuation of longevity risk. The data on population trends in Germany, the Netherlands, England and Wales is collated from various sources, verified and disseminated on a monthly basis. Previously, these data had only been available in the market every three to five years.


 
The Xpect Data product forms the basis for up-to-date and regular calculations of generation mortality tables. Unlike hitherto existing data, Xpect Data is based exclusively on transparent and objective statistics, rather than on expert opinions. It is particularly important for the calculation of risk positions for life insurance and pension funds that longevity data is up to date and of top quality.
 
As the population’s life expectancy increases, so too do payment obligations and risk positions.

Xpect Indices serve as securitization for life and pension insurance risks and they also serve as a basis for financial instruments. Insurance companies and pension funds will thus increase their capital efficiency and lower their required risk capital.
