The Club Vita story started in 2008, with the creation of the UK-based Club Vita LLP. It
was launched by Hymans Robertson LLP to fill an essential gap in the UK pension industry –
namely, the need for better understanding and management of longevity risk.
As a longevity centre of excellence, Club Vita’s mission is to connect a community of
pension plans to analyze data and gain insights not possible individually.
As the only company dedicated to providing longevity services to occupational pension plans
in the UK, Club Vita LLP currently covers approximately 220 member pension plans —
2.7million pensioners which is about 1 in 4 pensioners from DB pension plans, or 1 in 7 of
UK’s retired population.
An extension of the successful UK Club Vita brand, Club Vita Canada brings
longevity data processes, research, analysis, and services to the Canadian pension industry.
It leverages its UK counterpart’s established knowledge and expertise to give Canadian
pension plans access to leading-edge longevity analytics services. As in the UK, Club Vita
Canada looks for opportunities to offer longevity risk thought leadership through
independent and joint research initiatives.
Club Vita Canada’s vision is to be the driving force behind the mainstream adoption of
advanced longevity analytics and measurement in Canada. Club Vita Canada is also committed
to becoming the leader in the development of tools, techniques, and markets for the
efficient and effective management of Canadian longevity exposures and risk.
Club Vita Canada Inc. was created by Eckler
Ltd., a leading independent Canadian actuarial consulting firm. Both Eckler Ltd. and
Hymans Robertson LLP are members of
the Abelica Global network of independent consulting firms, and have a
strong history of successful collaboration.
