CS18: Reputational Risk in Reinsurance Transactions

Reputational Risk is a subject that should be of concern to all practicing actuaries. It not only affects you personally but reflects on your employer and the Casualty Actuarial Society itself. In this session we will start out by presenting guidance provided by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency on Complex Structured Financial Transactions (CSFT). We will then introduce a brief case study on a reinsurance treaty with a commission that adjusts based on loss experience. Attendees will discuss questions, such as: Is the structure consistent with the CSFT guidance? What are the actuary's responsibilities?

CS16: Property - Methods for Determining Capital Usage on a Reinsurance Portfolio

This session works through a case study in catastrophe reinsurance evaluation using distortion, a.k.a. spectral, risk measures. Given a portfolio of insured properties and a number of proposed programs (and prices), which provides the best economic value? Solution 1 (ca. 2000) uses risk-return plots to sift out which programs are on the "efficient frontier" given choices of capital risk metrics (e.g. VaR, TVaR). But then what? Where do you want to be on the frontier? Solution 2 (ca. 2010) takes the common--but problematic--approach of applying the firm's overall cost of capital to each program's allocated or "saved" capital in order to impute cost savings. We review and identify the source of the difficulties of this method. We propose an alternative, Solution 3: use the firm's own capital structure and capital market prices to elaborate how the cost of capital varies by layer of risk. We show how to compute the relative consumption of capital by layer, yielding a more realistic assessment of the cost of capital savings from each program.

CS10: Intermediate Experience and Exposure Rating Methods for Today

This session will build upon prior basic CARe track and boot camp materials and will presuppose familiarity with the basics of exposure and experience rating methodologies. This session will include the usage of more advanced techniques to address common excess rating challenges, exacerbated by the various extra stresses and data distortions currently being encountered. These additional distortions include: * shifting policy limits, credibility and blending of loss development factors, method confidence levels * recent heightened inflation, social inflation, civil unrest, and Covid impacts including on LDFs * accurately assessing these impacts holistically, will lead to more refined: * benchmarking and individual account analysis * avoiding overconfidence in experience and exposure rating
