4 Overview Non-life insurance from a financial perspective: for a premium an insurance company commits itself to pay a sum if an event has occured Contract period, a year in property insurance Policy holder signs up for an insurance Policy holder pays premium. Insurance company starts to earn premium retrospective prospective During the duration of the policy, some of the premium is earned, some is unearned How much premium is earned? How much premium is unearned? Is the premium sufficient to cover incurred (retrospective) and future losses (prospective)? 4
5 Why does it work?? Client 1 Client 2 Insurance company Client n-1 Client n Economic risk is transferred from the policyholder to the insurer Due to the law of large numbers (many almost independent clients), the loss of the insurance company is much more predictable than that of an individual Therefore the premium should be based on the expected loss that is transferred from the policyholder to the insurer Much of the course is about computing this expected loss...but first some insurance economics 5
6 How can the result of an insurance company be decomposed? Insurance economics in its most basic form: : + Insurance premium paid by the clients + financial income generated by the premium from the clients - claims paid to the clients - operational costs of the Insurance company = result to be distributed among the owners and the authorities 6
7 Insurance mathematics is fundamental in insurance economics The result drivers of insurance economics: : Result drivers: Risk based pricing, + Insurance premium reinsurance International economy for example interest rate level, + financial income risk profile for example stocks/no stocks risk reducing measures (for example installing burglar alarm), risk selection (client behaviour), change in legislation, weather phenomenons, demographic factors, - claims reinsurance measures to increase operational efficiency, IT-systems, - operational costs wage development = result to be distributed among the owners and the authorities Tax politics 7
8 Insurance economics Risk selection: Object risk which house is most likely to burn down??
9 Insurance economics Risk selection: subject risk.. sloppy client who is always unlucky.

18 Key parameters for non-life insurance in Norway The graph shows loss ratio (left axis), result degree (total revenue minus total costs, right axis), cost ratio (right axis) andincome from investments in percent of premium (right axis) for the period The result degree and the loss ratio vary a lot. The loss ratio seems to be the most important driver for profitability in non-life insurance The cost ratio and income from investments in percent of premium are decreasing during the period.
