My day-job at the University revolves around teaching undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students, courses on wealth management, investments, insurance, pensions and retirement planning.
As part of my academic responsibilities, I publish books, popular articles and technical papers, many of which you can download or link-to from this website.
My current research interests revolve around the area of financial history and the evolution of (retirement) insurance & annuity products over the centuries.

@JoeNunesActuary Do you have any evidence that de-risking is more likely done by companies with employees in poor health?
I have complained about this for years but nobody listens. Now I say: "Yes, 4% is optimal when coefficient of relative risk aversion is 7.3, risk-free rate is 2.1% and pre-existing pension income is zero." Lesson: Be positive. https://t.co/OvHEpoO6iA via @WSJ

@lorilivingstone Bravo! Let me know where to send the book.
@M_Maven 😀 No, not quite...
@lorilivingstone Very good guess. Yes. Ireland. But where? Hint: King William.
It's not about bringing back an old 17th century insurance product. It's about not spending mortality credits until you have earned them. https://t.co/QhvJ9wcaR9
