This paper uses a computer simulation model to measure the expected value and variance of prediction errors of four simple methods of estimating loss reserves. Two of these methods are new to the Proceedings. The simulated data triangles that are tested are meant to represent sample sizes typically found in individual risk rating situations. The results indicate that the commonly used age-to-age factor approach gives biased estimates and is inferior to the three other methods tested… 
Estimating Predictive Distributions for Loss Reserve Models
This paper demonstrates a Bayesian method for estimating the distribution of future loss payments of individual insurers. The main features of this method are: (1) the stochastic loss reserving model
Variability of Loss Reserves
This paper addresses the issue of biases in the loss reserving process, some of which may be intentional. Using an empirical analysis of data from 169 companies over a seventeen year period, it is
A Comparative Study of the Performance of Loss Reserving Methods through Simulation
Actuaries are often asked to provide a range or confidence level for the loss reserve along with a point estimate. Traditional methods of loss reserving do not provide an estimate of the variance of
Comparison of the claims reserves methods by analyzing the run-off error
The variability of claim costs represents an important risk component, which should be taken into account while implementing the internal models for solvency evaluation of an insurance undertaking.
A Simulation Procedure for Comparing Different Claims Reserving Methods
TLDR
A procedure by which one can explore how various reserving methods react to fictitious variations, fluctuations, trends, etc which might influence the claims process, and, what is most important, how they reflect on the variables indicating the financial position of the insurer.
Performing testing aggregate and structural reserving methods: A simulation approach
TLDR
Today’s computer applications are utilizes to create an automated simulation tool that allows the user to choose statistical assumptions for each element of the claims process and specify the structure of the simulation experiment, and generates random paid loss and claim count histories based on these inputs.
On the Accuracy of Loss Reserving Methodology
We evaluate the performance of various loss reserving methods and their associated parameterizations under a number of environments (e.g., changes in case reserve adequacy). We simulate proxy loss
Measuring Loss Reserve Uncertainty
most actuaries. Moreover, in at least some cases, these procedures provide estimates of loss reserve uncertainty that depend on vet')" strong assumptions that virtually assume the conclusions
Some Extensions of J . N . Stanard ’ s Simulation Model for Loss Reserving
The loss process model and simulation procedures proposed by James M. Stanard in 1985 are extended in numerous ways, including provision for serial autocorrelation of parameters, mixtures of claim
Run-Off Error in the Outstanding Claims Reserves Evaluation
The variability of claim costs represents an important risk component, which should be taken into account while implementing the internal models for solvency evaluation of an insurance undertaking.
