Actuarial and Risk Modelling for Insurance

Designed to meet modelling requirements of the Actuarial and Risk department

The two basic types of models used in actuarial modelling are deterministic models and stochastic models. Deterministic models are the simpler of the two. They both use estimates of probabilities for each event, and they predict the number of events that will actually happen based on these estimates. Stochastic models allow for more randomness, but they require more computational power.

Finalyse combines a technological perspective with a practical approach to actuarial and risk modelling, helping insurers manage this balancing act along each step of the process.

IFRS 17 June 2020 amendments overview – the last dance?

On the 25th June 2020, the International Accounting Standard Board (IASB) has published several amendments to IFRS 17. These amendments address many of the concerns raised by the industry and aim at facilitating the implementation of IFRS17, without deviating from its underlying principles. Along with a postponed implementation deadline, the amendments aim mostly at decreasing the administrative cost and complexity as well as improving the consistency of the financial statements results. This article goes through all the changes that result from these amendments, and discusses their impact on the IFRS 17 implementation.

2020 Solvency II review – Technical Provisions and SCR

The 2020 Solvency II review intends to bring about several changes to the Solvency II Framework Directive. It follows the 2018 Solvency II interim review, which amended the Solvency II Delegated Acts. In this article, we focus on the EIOPA’s opinions on technical provisions. For now, we are excluding Long Term Guarantee (LTG) measures, a topic which deserves an article all to itself.
