mandate of task force
Mandate of Task Force
  • To explore alternative methodologies for determining actuarial liabilities and capital considering the total balance sheet requirements
  • To address the issue of the recognition of hedging in the determination of actuarial liabilities and regulatory capital for segregated fund guarantees
  • To identify at a high level all material risks that should be considered in the determination of the liabilities and capital
  • To identify areas where further guidance is required
mandate of task force1
Mandate of Task Force
  • Intention is to prepare a well-articulated recommended methodology
    • If no consensus or no methodology is clearly superior then documentation of various methodologies with advantages and disadvantages would be prepared

time frame

  • Whether current approach captures all the risks and produces sufficient required capital
  • Last year’s crisis highlights that there continues to be unresolved issues in establishing required capital
osfi s concerns1
OSFI’s Concerns
  • OSFI is concerned with the significant differences amongst companies; different models are used to model the same risk
  • OSFI is investigating alternative methodologies
  • OSFI will consider the work of the Task Force

Segregated Fund Policyholder Behaviour

The Member Services Council established a subcommittee to investigate what analysis should be conducted for segregated funds policyholder behaviour

  • Subcommittee of the Research Committee
  • Will start with an empirical analysis of policyholder lapsation
research objective
Research Objective
  • Gather together data on lapses across relevant policyholder, distribution and product features characteristics
    • Will deliver a report and Excel tables for practitioners to perform additional analysis
current status
Current Status
  • Currently working on the second iteration of the data request template
  • Preparing a notice of intent to obtain data for a segregated fund lapse experience study (incl. data guidelines, instructions and confidentiality agreement)
next steps
Next Steps
  • Data processing, analysis of results and construction of lapse tables based on experience
    • Data collection targeted for 2010
    • Report and distribution to members
