It’s Not All Social Inflation - Is General Inflation Back for Real? Worldwide Overview of How Actuaries Should Consider These Two Forms of Inflation

Timothy McCarthy, ACAS, Verisk/ISO, Elliot Burn, FCAS, ISO/Verisk, David Clark, FCAS, Munich Re America Services, Inc.; Angela Redding, Lloyd’s

How many actuaries remember when general inflation was real? Inflation hasn’t exceeded 4% since 1991. But as actuaries, we are familiar with social inflation and, prior to Covid, there were multiple indicators that social inflation was driving claim costs higher. There has been an increase in nuclear verdicts, increasingly negative societal views towards large institutions, the emergence of litigated claims as an asset class due to litigation financing, and increases in income and wealth inequality. All these factors may be driving jury awards and settlements higher. Now there are spikes in the cost of materials, cars, and labor in addition to social inflation. The changes in social and general inflation that are being seen will have different impacts by line of business. This session will address these topics and provide insights from the data as to where the impacts of social and general inflation are showing up in insurance claims. Additionally, a summary of Lloyd’s thematic work to date on inflation, and social inflation in particular, will be presented focusing on capital modelling.

This session is already an option for CAS Wednesday livestream attendees.

For GIRO attendees, you must register separately using the discount code provided to you by email from IFoA. You will have access to all of Wednesday’s livestream sessions!
