  • JL Soft = SW house founded in 2003

  • located in the Czech Rep.

  • Objective: developing and marketing of actuarial system Sophas

  • Many respected clients

  • JL Soft team:

    • experienced actuaries and IT experts

    • specialized for actuarial models creation and their use in practice

2 business needs for actuarial models system

2. Business needs for actuarial models/system

Actuarial development
Actuarial development

Deterministic approach:

  • premium and reserve calculation – traditional

  • profit testing analyses

  • LAT - Fair Value of liabilities (deterministic)

  • Embedded Value – traditional (determ.) approach - performance measurement, analysis of movement

  • Value of New Business

  • Appraisal Value – acquisition

  • ALM analyses (CF projection, duration, …)

  • planning

  • IAS 19 – value of Employee Benefits

Actuarial development 2
Actuarial development (2)

Stochastic approach:

  • TVFOG =

    = Best estimate value of liabilities (stoch.)

    – Value of liabilities (determ.)

    => stochastic approach required for TVFOG

  • Important applications:

    • Fair Value of life liabilities = BELincl.TVFOG + Risk Margin

    • IFRS

    • Market Consistent Embedded Value (MCEV)

    • Solvency II:

      • standard formula, internal models (VaR), ORSA

      • again FV and BEL (incl. FOG) required

4. Sophas


  • = Sophisticated Actuarial System

  • actuarial system especially prepared for fast running and easy preparing of cash flow models

  • focused on needs of insurance companies

  • based on Delphi

  • generate code in dll form

  • compilers:

    • Free Pascal – included in installation

    • Delphi 5 and higher

  • HW key protection


Technical requirements:

  • full 32-bit oper. system MS Windows

  • processor Pentium or compatible

  • oper. memory min. 64 MB

  • graphics adapter allowing picture definition min. 800 x 600

  • monitor min. 800 x 600

  • free HD space 60 MB for installation

  • CD or USB unit

  • mouse or similar device

  • USB port for HW key

  • Implementation in cooperation with Tools4F (

  • Modeling of the company specific products

  • Positives:

    • actuarial and modeling know-how

    • optimal Sophas solution

    • fast solution

    • easy to extend

      Majority of clients have accepted.

7. Conclusions


  • Sophas:

    • existing solution proved in practice

    • fast implementation possible

    • full actuarial support available

    • immediate professional step forward

They sa id about us
They said about us

Actuaries should learn other systems first to understand how much SOPHAS is easier-to-use and efficient.

Thank you for your help and support. We really appreciate that you and your team have answered our questions in such a short time.

We test SOPHAS, try its possibilities and compare it to our existing models. During our tests we have seen that SOPHAS is a well-structured, easy-to-use software. It was easy to understand its main parts and defining the variables and calculations was also simple.

We highly appreciate your help and generous offer.

We would like to thank you and your team for all the time and attention, where we have been requesting for online demonstrations and software testing.

We are also glad to share the opinion about SOPHAS.

From the tests we have done, we realized that SOPHAS is:

  • comprehensive software

  • fast-processing software

  • provides the necessary information and results for the elaboration of the valuation report

  • the models provided make it up for a powerful calculation tool

  • we were able to foresee the standardization that we could implement on our activities;
