CIA Annual Meeting LOOKING BACK…focused on the future
Experience Studies East Coast Edition!!! June 29, 2005 #4608
Contestants: • Scott McGaire, AVP and Actuary, Manulife Financial • Lloyd Milani, Actuarial Services Vice-President, Munich Re
Potpourri $100 • Mission Impossible • What is the mission or term of reference for the Committee on Expected Experience?
Mission • Identify the need for and conduct, on a periodic basis, experience studies on demographics, claims, expense and other occurrences of actuarial interest relating to as many areas of actuarial practice as possible, including the preparation of experience tables. Analyze the experience with particular emphasis on its applicability to, and impact on, actuarial assumptions for pricing, cost estimates and valuation of liabilities. Undertake research into selected areas of experience where future experience might be materially different from past experience. Identify the need for, and prepare papers on, the selection of relevant assumptions where a standard table is not appropriate, but the particular entity’s own experience is not fully credible. Communicate with other professional and industry groups on topics relating to experience studies and expected experience
