Our story

The Club Vita story launched 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 200 member pension plans — 2.2 million pensioners representing about 15% of the UK's retired population.

An extension of the successful UK Club Vita brand, Club Vita Canada brings ground-breaking 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.
