Abstract

This paper has been written for anyone who is likely to be affected by standards that the Board for Actuarial Standards (the BAS) may publish on mortality assumptions. The intended audience includes actuaries, the entities that actuaries advise, the regulators of and shareholders in those entities, and those for whom those entities provide services (typically, but not exclusively, pension benefits, life insurance policies, or annuities).
