Pensions and Superannuation Seminar Series 2018


The Pensions and Superannuation Seminar Series is jointly hosted by CEPAR and the School of Risk & Actuarial Studies at UNSW.

It takes place on a Monday from 12-1pm at UNSW Kensington Campus, in Seminar Room 2063, Quadrangle Building, and provides an excellent opportunity to network with pensions and superannuation experts from Australia and overseas. This is an interdisciplinary group with backgrounds in economics, actuarial studies, law, demography and related fields. We invite attendance of participants from other universities and from industry who are interested in both theoretical and applied research on pensions and superannuation.

We also welcome presenters who are early career academics or practitioners. Please contact Dr. Héloïse Labit Hardy if you are interested in presenting or want to be added to our mailing list.
