  • Managing the delivery of multiple projects across a portfolio of clients and responsibilities, ensuring that work is done on time and to a high standard

The candidate

  • Personal values, including a commitment to professional and ethical behavior aligned to our own
  • Ability to mentor and coach junior staff
  • Flexible in approach, willing to take on any task and comfortable with working in a continuously evolving start-up environment

  • Candidate would be expected to have an actuarial background, with knowledge of demographic experience analysis techniques, and ideally some knowledge of the financial dynamics of longevity (re)insurers.

Company Overview

Club Vita’s mission is to improve later life financial well-being by promoting awareness of longevity risk and making its management transparent and efficient.

Club Vita was born in the UK in 2008.  Our systems and processes were designed by a multi-disciplinary team of over 50 employees across our three geographies, with a shared passion for “allowing the data to do the talking” by combining modern technology and statistical techniques.  Following a successful UK launch, we went on to build similar communities in Canada (2015) and in the United States (2019).   

We work primarily with workplace pension funds in the UK, Canada and the US. On their behalf, we facilitate the accumulation and pooling of data underlying the longevity patterns of retirees with annuity benefits. Club member pension funds and their advisors use our analytics to understand their emerging longevity patterns, to drive more informed strategic decisions and to embed best-practice risk-management into their governance frameworks.  We also support financial institutions that manage longevity risk: insurers, reinsurers and asset managers, helping them offer attractive longevity risk protection products in a tech-enabled, efficient manner. In total our international community reaches 400 pension funds, 7 pension advisory firms and 25 (re)insurers. Across our three clubs, we are tracking the survival patterns of a diverse population of over five million people with benefits in workplace pension plans.
