About Us

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.

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. Our current community includes 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. ​

Club Vita was born in the UK in 2008.  Our systems and processes have been developed 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).

The role initially involves collating and processing longevity data, running longevity models, preparing technical analysis and production of club member reports.

  • Process data, prepare reports and calculations, and respond to inquiries from internal and external parties.
  • Contribute to the effective knowledge transfer within the team.
  • Liaise with the internal US and international team and external parties to perform all necessary data processing, calculation and reporting.
  • Develop an in-depth understanding of working procedures and systems applications.
  • Work to improve efficiency and refine processes.
  • Adhere to the highest Information Security standards, policies and procedures
Qualifications, Skills and Experience
  • Experience in the pension or insurance industry, with a strong preference for a focus on defined benefit pension plan or group annuity block administration.
