Framework directive:

“ The actuarial function shall be carried out by persons who have knowledge of actuarial and financial mathematics, commensurate with the nature, scale and complexity of the risks inherent in the business of the insurance or reinsurance undertaking, and who are able to demonstrate their relevant experience with applicable professional and other standards.”

  • Can a principle of proportionality be applied in respect to the actuarial function?
  • In addition, general “fit and proper” requirements, e.g. reputation and integrity.

    • Different background and education of actuaries
    • Different local practices

    • CEIOPS
    • Use current standards
    • Special independent body will be established (preferred option)
  • Prescriptive standards or high-level guidance?
major changes in actuarial methods
Major changes in actuarial methods
  • Different actuarial techniques will be required:
    • Generally based on projections of future cash flows
    • Probability weighted
    • Explicit allowance for risk
  • Affects both life and non life insurance
  • Additional technical complications if internal model is chosen
communication communication communication
Communication, communication, communication…
  • Organizational structure should ensure close cooperation between actuarial, product development, finance and risk management functions
  • Documentation requirements (controls, models, etc.)
  • Will require different type of skills from actuaries
    • Understanding wider business processes
    • Communication skills
  • We will need to make sure other people in the organization understand our calculations!
other issues
Other issues
  • More frequent and quicker reporting? – need to change IT systems and internal processes
  • Role of the holder of actuarial function (Appointed Actuary) not defined yet
  • Lack of actuaries (especially during the transition stage)
