12th Asia Conference on Pensions and Retirement Planning

The 12th Asia Conference on Pensions and Retirement Planning hosted by Asia Insurance Review was held at Mandarin Orchard Hotel Singapore on the 14th and 15th September 2016.

Dr Wolfgang Droste suggested “there’s a public perception relating wealth and longevity: the richer you are, the longer you live.”  He is the Chief Advisor Asia of Life/Health Asia of Gen Re — A Berkshire Hathaway Company.

He also mentioned “In retirement planning, 80% of public feel that financial advice has no value.”


Ian J. Watts, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of International Operations of LIMRA and LOMA added that “Pension scheme in each country should be scalable & sizeable enough to fund future liability.”

More notable quotes from Josef Piger, EY and Candy Yuen, HSBC Insurance (Asia) Limited:

“Financial well-being works for private banking clients focusing more on information, education, advice, and transactions” — Josef Pilger, Global Pension and Retirement Market Segment Leader, Asia Pacific Pension Practice Leader, EY

“Financial hardship is the main barrier to retirement.” — Candy Yuen, Chief Executive Officer, HSBC Insurance (Asia) Limited.

About Asia Insurance Review

Asia Insurance Review was launched in January 1991 to meet the information needs of insurance practitioners in Asia in particular and the rest of the world in general. It quickly became the premier and comprehensive professional regional magazine, read by all the key decision makers and readers in the insurance industry in Asia from Australia, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Fiji, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, etc.

As part of our growth process, and in response to the demands of readers, we went into organising insurance-related conferences to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and expertise to the region. Very quickly Asia Insurance Review’s technical conferences became an integral service to Asia’s insurance industry.

We launched the Asia Insurance Industry Awards to recognise and salute excellence in the insurance industry since 1997. We also launched the Australia and New Zealand Insurance Industry Awards in 2004. These are our conscious attempts to promote the industry’s move towards higher standards and greater professionalism.

We publish five comprehensive insurance directories – Asean Insurance Directory, Insurance Directory of Asia, Reinsurance Directory of Asia, World Islamic Insurance Directory , and the MENA Insurance Directory – which serve as reference for the industry to stay in touch.
