Risk, Capital and Solvency Models - an ORSA Perspective

The Swiss Solvency Test was implemented almost a decade ago and the experiences made with this tried-and-tested Swiss solution can serve as a basis for building quantitative risk, capital and solvency models for the purpose of an ORSA.

About The Event

Prime Re Academy is pleased to invite you to attend the first workshop of the Capital Modelling Week in Zurich, Switzerland, in February 2019. Focus will be set on the following topic:

Risk, Capital and Solvency Models - an ORSA Perspective

The Swiss Solvency Test was implemented almost a decade ago and the experiences made with this tried-and-tested Swiss solution can serve as a basis for building quantitative risk, capital and solvency models for the purpose of an ORSA. The workshop familiarizes the participants with the tools they need to implement risk, capital and solvency models, and it enables them to put this acquired know-how into practice on the spot. This workshop takes place between the workshops “The Standard Model of the Swiss Solvency Test” and “The Standard Formula of Solvency II”. Therefore, the relating workshops can be combined at a reduced fee.

During the workshop we shall build up in a modular way a prototype internal model in Excel®. Participants should therefore bring along their own laptops. In particular we will consider:

– Components of the economic balance sheet and the Basic Own Funds

– Components of the risk and the Solvency Capital Requirement

– Reinsurance (proportional and non-proportional)

– Risk aggregation (Monte Carlo algorithmic, dependences and copulas, etc.)

– Meta-risks (parameter risk, replicating portfolios, deterministic stress scenarios, etc.)

Secondly, the participants shall apply the prototype internal model they have built to perform user tests (Portfolio planning, reinsurance optimization, capital allocation). The workshop precedes the workshop “Validation”, therefore, the relating workshops can be combined at a reduced fee.

Target Group

The workshop is designed for all professionals who are interested in actuarial and financial modelling. Participants do not need to be fully qualified actuaries, however, they will benefit from a good command of Excel® (excluding VBA). In addition, they should be familiar with elementary concepts of insurance, statistics and stochastic modelling.

Conceptual framework

The Prime Re Academy workshops are of technical nature and structured so that theory and practice alternately complement each other, creating a lively learning platform. We simultaneously present on two separate screens the theoretical foundations in PowerPoint® format and the matching practical applications on an Excel® platform. Thanks to the interlocking of theory and practice, the course contents can be taught in a most efficient manner and the participants can be challenged intensively.

Participants should bring along their own laptops so that they can implement and test the theoretical concepts with the Excel® prototypes we will hand over to them.

Moreover, to enhance the international learning experience and networking, the workshop starts in the afternoon and includes joint dinners: this way the participants quickly get to know each other and the lecturers, so that promptly a dynamic atmosphere of mutual challenge and know-how transfer sets in. In particular we encourage the participants to steer the focus of the workshop according to their current needs, e.g. with more emphasis on life or property & casualty business.

Registration will be closed after 6 February 2019.
