1 Combining GLM and datamining techniques for modelling accident compensation data Peter Mulquiney

2 Introduction Accident compensation data exhibit features which complicate loss reserving and premium rate setting Speeding up or slowing down of payment patterns Abrupt changes in trends due to legislative changes Changes in the profile of claims Other changes which emerge as superimposed inflation Complicated structure can be modelled with GLMs structure chosen in an ad hoc manner process can be laborious and can be fallible

3 Alternative: Data mining techniques Artificial Neural Networks CART, MARS etc Advantages: Introduction flexible architecture can fit almost any data structure model fitting is largely automated

4 Overview Examine general form of model of claims data Examine the specific case of a GLM to represent the data Consider how the GLM structure is chosen Introduce and discuss Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) Consider how these may assist in formulating a GLM

5 Model of claims data General form of claims data model Y i = f(x i ; β) + ε i Y i = some observation on claims experience β = vector of parameters that apply to all observations X i = vector of attributes (covariates) of i-th observation ε i = vector of centred stochastic error terms

6 General form of claims data model Y i = f(x i ; β) + ε i Y i = some observation on claims experience β = vector of parameters that apply to all observations X i = vector of attributes (covariates) of i-th observation ε i = vector of centred stochastic error terms Examples Model of claims data Y i = Y ad = paid losses in (a,d) cell» a = accident period» d = development period Y i = cost of i-th completed claim

7 Examples (cont) Y ad = paid losses in (a,d) cell E[Y ad ] = β d Σ r=1 d-1 Y ar (chain ladder)

8 Y ad = paid losses in (a,d) cell E[Y ad ] = β d Σ r=1 d-1 Y ar (chain ladder) Y i = cost of i-th completed claim Y i ~ Gamma E[Y i ] = exp [α+β t i ] where Examples (cont)» a i = accident period to which i-th claim belongs» t i = operational time at completion of i-th claim = proportion of claims from the accident period a i completed before i-th claim

9 Examples of individual claim models More generally E[Y i ] = exp {function of operational time}

10 Examples of individual claim models More generally E[Y i ] = exp {function of operational time} + function of accident period (legislative change)}

11 More generally E[Y i ] = Examples of individual claim models exp {function of operational time} + function of accident period (legislative change)} + function of completion period (superimposed inflation)}

12 More generally E[Y i ] = Examples of individual claim models exp {function of operational time} + function of accident period (legislative change)} + function of completion period (superimposed inflation)} + joint function (interaction) of operational time & accident period (change in payment pattern attributable to legislative change)}

13 Examples of individual claim models Models of this type may be very detailed May include Operational time effect (payment pattern) Seasonality Creeping change in payment pattern Abrupt change in payment pattern Accident period effect (legislative change) Completion quarter effect (superimposed inflation) Variations of superimposed inflation with operational time

14 Choosing GLM structure Typically largely ad hoc, using Trial and error regressions Diagnostics, e.g. residual plots Example: Modelling 60,000 Auto Bodily Injury claims Model of the cost of completed claims

15 Choosing GLM structure First fit just an operational time effect 12.5 Linear Predictor optime optime

16 Choosing GLM structure But there appear to be unmodelled trends by Accident quarter Completion (finalisation) quarter Studentized Standardized Deviance Residuals by accident quarter Studentized Standardized Deviance Residuals by finalisation quarter Sep-94 Dec-94 Mar-95 Jun-95 Sep-95 Dec-95 Mar-96 Jun-96 Sep-96 Dec-96 Mar-97 Jun-97 Sep-97 Dec-97 Mar-98 Jun-98 Sep-98 Dec-98 Mar-99 Jun-99 Sep-99 Dec-99 Mar-00 Jun-00 Sep-00 Dec-00 Mar-01 Jun-01 Sep-01 Dec-01 Mar-02 Jun-02 Sep-02 Dec-02 Mar-03 Jun-03 Sep-03 De c-94 Mar -95 Ju n- 95 Sep-95 De c- 95 Mar -96 Ju n- 96 Sep-96 De c- 96 Mar-97 Ju n- 97 Se p-97 De c- 97 Mar-98 Ju n-98 Se p-98 De c- 98 Mar-99 Ju n-99 Sep- 99 De c- 99 Mar-0 0 Ju n- 00 Sep- 00 Dec-00 Mar -0 1 Ju n- 01 Sep- 01 De c-01 Mar -0 2 Ju n- 02 Sep-02 De c-02 Mar -03 Ju n- 03 Sep-03

17 Choosing GLM structure Final model has terms for: Age of claim Seasonality Accident quarter Change in Scheme rules Change in age of claim effect with change in Scheme rules Superimposed inflation Varying with age of claim

18 Choosing GLM structure Structure identified in ad hoc manner Trial and error regressions Diagnostics, e.g. residual plots More rigorous approach desirable Can we use ANN to do it better?

19 Introduction to ANN The ANN Regression Function Start with vector of P inputs X = {x p } Create hidden layer with M hidden units Make M linear combinations of inputs h m = p w Linear combinations then passed through layer of activation functions g(h m ) Z m = mp x g( h ) = ( m g w p p mp x p )

20 Activation function Introduction to ANN Usually a sigmoidal curve g(h) g( h) 1 = 1 + e h h Function introduces non-linearity to model keeps response bounded

21 Introduction to ANN Y is then given by a linear combination of the outputs from the hidden layer Y = W = ( mz m Wmg m m p w mp x p ) This function can describe any continuous function 2 hidden layers ANN can describe any function

22 Introduction to ANN Y W m Z m g h m w m X i

23 Training an ANN Weights are usually determined by minimising the least-squares error Err = 1 2 Weight decay penalty function stops overfitting N i= 1 ( y f ( i X i 2 )) Err + λ( 2 + m W m w m p 2 mp ) Larger λ smaller weights Smaller weights smoother fit

24 Training of an ANN - Example Training data set: 70% of available data Test data set: 30% of available data Network structure: Single hidden layer 20 units Weight decay λ=0.05 These tuning parameters determined by crossvalidation Prediction error in test data set

25 GLM Comparison of GLM and ANN ANN Average absolute error = \$33,777 Average absolute error = \$33,559

26 1D graphical plots to visualise data features e.g. historical and future superimposed inflation Development quarter 10: red Development quarter 20: green Development quarter 30: yellow Development quarter 40: blue ANN forecasts ANN has searched out general form of past superimposed inflation (SI) Future SI determined by simple extrapolation

27 Note forecast negative SI may be undesirable Need to consider expected claims environment in the future to determine appropriate SI forecast Because of problem of extrapolation with ANN usually necessary to supplement ANN forecast with a separate forecast of future SI. ANN forecasts

28 Combining ANN and GLM Often preferable to use a GLM over ANN due to model simplicity and transparency ANN 181 parameters GLM 13 pars May get best out of ANN and GLM if use in combination Use ANN as an automated tool to seeking out trends in data Apply ANN to data set Study trends in fitted model against a range of predictors or pairs of predictors using graphical means Use this knowledge to choose the functional forms to include in the GLM model

29 Combining ANN and GLM Ultimate test of the GLM is to apply ANN to its residuals, seeking structure There should be none The example indicates that there may the chosen GLM structure may: Over-estimate the more recent experience at the midages of claim Under-estimate it at the older ages

30 Conclusions GLMs provide a powerful and flexible family of models for claims data Complex GLM structures may be required for adequate representation of the data The identification of these may be difficult The identification procedures are likely to be ad hoc ANNs provide an alternative form of non-linear regression These are likely to involve their own shortcomings if left to stand on their own (e.g. reduced transparency) They may, however, provide considerable assistance if used in parallel with GLMs to identify GLM structure
