A Bridge between Local GAAP and Solvency II Frameworks to Quantify Capital Requirement for Demographic Risk

  title={A Bridge between Local GAAP and Solvency II Frameworks to Quantify Capital Requirement for Demographic Risk},
  author={Gian Paolo Clemente and Francesco Della Corte and Nino Savelli},
The aim of this paper is to provide a stochastic model useful for assessing the capital requirement for demographic risk in a framework coherent with the Solvency II Directive. The model extends to the market consistent context classical methodologies developed in a local accounting framework. The random variable demographic profit, defined in literatue under local accounting principles, is indeed analysed in a Solvency II framework. We provide a unique formulation for different non… Expand


A Risk-Theory Model to Assess the Capital Requirement for Mortality and Longevity Risk
Abstract There is considerable uncertainty regarding the future development of life expectancy that leads to significant change in many fields of the insurance market. Pricing annuity products andExpand

This paper examines the consequences for a life annuity insurance company if thesolvency II solvency capital requirements (SCR) are calibrated based on expected shortfall (ES) instead of value-at-risk (VaR), and finds that for EIOPA’s current quantile 99.5% of the VaR, the stress scenarios of the various risk classes based on ES are close to the stress scenario based on VaR.

Assessing the cost of capital for longevity risk
The cost of capital is a key element of the embedded value methodology for the valuation of a life business. Further, under some solvency approaches (in particular, the Swiss Solvency Test and theExpand
Lifetime Asset Allocation with Idiosyncratic and Systematic Mortality Risks
This paper considers the lifetime asset allocation problem with both idiosyncratic and systematic longevity risks, in which the stochastic mortality model is given by a general diffusion process. AExpand
Calculating Capital Requirements for Longevity Risk in Life Insurance Products Using an Internal Model in Line with Solvency II
Over the last decades, significant improvements in life expectancy have been observed in most Western countries. More importantly, there is considerable uncertainty regarding the future developmentExpand
Fair Dynamic Valuation of Insurance Liabilities: Merging Actuarial Judgement With Market- and Time-Consistency
In this paper, we investigate the fair valuation of insurance liabilities in a dynamic multi-period setting. We define a fair dynamic valuation as a valuation which is actuarial (mark-to-model forExpand
Fair valuation of insurance liabilities: Merging actuarial judgement and market-consistency
In this paper, we investigate a single period framework for the fair valuation of the liabilities related to an insurance policy or portfolio.We de ne a fair valuation as a valuation which is bothExpand
Stochastic mortality in life insurance: market reserves and mortality-linked insurance contracts
Abstract In life insurance, actuaries have traditionally calculated premiums and reserves using a deterministic mortality intensity, which is a function of the age of the insured only. Here, we modelExpand
Time‐Consistent and Market‐Consistent Evaluations
It is shown that in a dynamic setting with a continuous stock prices process every evaluation which is time-consistent and market- Consistent is a two step market evaluation. Expand
Longevity risk in portfolios of pension annuities
We analyze the importance of longevity risk for the solvency of portfolios of pension annuities. We distinguish two types of mortality risk. Micro-longevity risk quantifies the risk related toExpand
