Incisive Media, award-winning publisher of Risk magazine and Post Magazine, today announced the launch of Life & Pensions, a new monthly magazine that delivers risk and capital management intelligence to the life and pensions industry.
Life & Pensions responds to the need for a greater understanding of risk management by life and pensions providers, a diverse community ranging from chief risk officers at multinational life companies to pension fund trustees and actuaries. The title delivers top-quality editorial coverage expected from the Incisive Media brand along with in-depth analysis of the latest risk management techniques to the industry.
ÂFor some years the life and pensions industry has been tested by a combination of low inflation, falling equity returns and increasing longevity,Â says Nicholas Dunbar, Editor of Life & Pensions magazine.
ÂThese are challenging times and the industry needs to come together to discuss these issues and learn about the new business environment, Life & Pensions provides the focal pointÂ
Dunbar goes on to say ÂLife & Pensions covers all the important regulatory, industry and intellectual developments combined with in-depth analysis of key issues such as capital models or supervisory frameworks, and of financial market or technology solutionsÂ.
Tony Gibson, Managing Director, Risk Management Division said, ÂWe are delighted with this new launch, it sees Incisive Media broaden its coverage of risk management and exploit an opportunity to establish a title at the heart of a trillion-dollar industry where there are significant subscription, training, advertising and events opportunities.Â
James Hanbury, Chief Operating Officer, Incisive Media, commented, ÂI am delighted at this extension to our magazine portfolio. New product development is central to our strategy to aggressively grow our business and this new launch for the life and pensions industry demonstrates our ongoing commitment to growth.
Incisive Media, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange in the media sector, owns leading publications such as Risk and Investment Week. Hanbury said the group would apply its successful business model of creating brand extensions such as conferences, books and websites to the life and pensions market as the magazine establishes its presence.
