Milliman Logo

Milliman's new Arius system is the next step in the evolution of reserve analysis solutions. Arius combines our 20+ years of experience providing the most widely used deterministic tools with our industry-leading research into using multiple models to simulate loss distributions and reserve variability.

Arius gives you the best of both worlds. Its full spectrum of exhibits and projection methods, and the flexibility to build your own, help eliminate tedious number crunching and reduce review time. Arius' stochastic tools provide a number of different models for estimating distributions of possible outcomes. You are no longer limited to a basic simulation, but can evaluate several different models, using the ones that most reliably simulate your specific situation.

Arius is customizable. You can set up your analysis to support your preferred work flow, rather than having to live with the system's pre-defined approach. And with deterministic and stochastic tools working from the same data, all your work papers and analyses are now finally in one place.
