Life & Longevity Markets Association

Welcome to the website of the
Life & Longevity Markets Association


The LLMA has been established as a not-for-profit venture in order to promote a liquid traded market in longevity and mortality-related risk.

The LLMA’s members are:
AVIVA, AXA, Deutsche Bank, J.P. Morgan, Legal & General, Morgan Stanley, Munich Re, Pension Corporation, Prudential PLC, RBS and Swiss Re.

Longevity expectations continue to increase across the developed world. As they do, defined benefit pension funds, a primary holder of this risk, are having to recognise it in their actuarial valuations. This increases their liabilities and puts their finances under further pressure.
