2 1 Explain the difference between a profit vector and a profit signature. [2] 2 A 20year temporary annuitydue of 1 per annum is issued to a life aged 50 exact. (a) Express the expected present value of the annuity in terms of an assurance function. (b) Hence calculate the value using the mortality table AM92 Ultimate with 4% interest. [3] 3 A life insurance company sells an annual premium whole life assurance policy where the sum assured is payable at the end of the year of death. Expenses are incurred at the start of each policy year, and claim expenses are nil. (a) Write down a recursive relationship between the gross premium provisions at successive durations, with provisions calculated on the premium basis. Define all the symbols that you use. (b) Explain in words the meaning of the relationship. [4] 4 A life insurance company issues an annuity to a life aged 60 exact. The purchase price is 200,000. The annuity is payable monthly in advance and is guaranteed to be paid for a period of 10 years and for the whole of life thereafter. Calculate the annual annuity payment. Basis: Mortality Interest AM92 Ultimate 6% per annum [4] CT5 A2005 2
3 5 A threestate transition model is shown in the following diagram: Alive Sick Dead Assume that the transition probabilities are constant at all ages with = 2%, = 4%, = 1% and = 5%. Calculate the present value of a sickness benefit of 2,000 p.a. paid continuously to a life now aged 40 exact and sick, during this period of sickness, discounted at 4% p.a. and payable to a maximum age of 60 exact. [4] 6 Calculate the probability of survival to age 60 exact using ELT15 (Males) for a life aged 45½ exact using two approximate methods. State any assumptions you make. [5] 7 A joint life annuity of 1 per annum is payable continuously to lives currently aged x and y while both lives are alive. The present value of the annuity payments is expressed as a random variable, in terms of the joint future lifetime of x and y. Derive and simplify as far as possible expressions for the expected present value and the variance of the present value of the annuity. [5] 8 A pension scheme provides a pension on illhealth retirement of 1/80 th of Final Pensionable Salary for each year of pensionable service subject to a minimum pension of 20/80 ths of Final Pensionable Salary. Final Pensionable Salary is defined as the average salary earned in the three years before retirement. Normal retirement age is 65 exact. Derive a formula for the present value of the illhealth retirement benefit for a member currently aged 35 exact with exactly 10 years past service and salary for the year before the calculation date of 20,000.

6 13 A life insurance company issues a 4year unitlinked endowment assurance contract to a male life aged 40 exact under which level premiums of 1,000 per annum are payable in advance. In the first year, 50% of the premium is allocated to units and 102.5% in the second and subsequent years. The units are subject to a bidoffer spread of 5% and an annual management charge of 0.5% of the bid value of the units is deducted at the end of each year. If the policyholder dies during the term of the policy, the death benefit of 4,000 or the bid value of the units after the deduction of the management charge, whichever is higher, is payable at the end of the year of death. On surrender or on survival to the end of the term, the bid value of the units is payable at the end of the year of exit. The company uses the following assumptions in its profit test of this contract: Rate of growth on assets in the unit fund Rate of interest on nonunit fund cashflows Independent rates of mortality Independent rate of withdrawal Initial expenses Renewal expenses Initial commission Renewal commission Risk discount rate 6% per annum 4% per annum AM92 Select 10% per annum in the first policy year; 5% per annum in the second and subsequent policy years. 150 plus 100% of the amount of initial commission 50 per annum on the second and subsequent premium dates 10% of first premium 2.5% of the second and subsequent years premiums 8% per annum (i) (ii) Calculate the profit margin on the assumption that the office does not zeroise future negative cashflows and that decrements are uniformly distributed over the year.

27 11 A life insurance company issues a threeyear unitlinked endowment assurance contract to a male life aged 62 exact under which level annual premiums of 10,000 are payable in advance throughout the term of the policy or until earlier death. 85% of each year s premium is invested in units at the offer price. There is a bidoffer spread in unit values, with the bid price being 95% of the offer price. There is an annual management charge of 1.25% of the bid value of units. Management charges are deducted at the end of each year, before death or maturity benefits are paid. On the death of the policyholder during the term of the policy, there is a benefit payable at the end of the year of death of 20,000, or the bid value of the units allocated to the policy, if greater. On maturity, 115% of the full bid value of the units is payable. The company holds unit provisions equal to the full bid value of the units. It sets up nonunit provisions to zeroise any negative nonunit fund cashflows, other than those occurring in the first year. The life insurance company uses the following assumptions in carrying out profit tests of this contract: Mortality AM92 Ultimate Expenses Initial 600 Renewal 100 at the start of each of the second and third policy years Unit fund growth rate Nonunit fund interest rate Nonunit fund provision basis Risk discount rate 8% per annum 4% per annum AM92 Ultimate mortality, interest 4% per annum 15% per annum Calculate the profit margin on the contract.

28 12 On 1 January 2000, a life insurance company issued joint life whole life assurance policies to couples. Each couple comprised one male and one female life and both were aged 50 exact on 1 January Under each policy, a sum assured of 200,000 is payable immediately on the death of the second of the lives to die. Premiums under each policy are payable annually in advance while at least one of the lives is alive. (i) Calculate the annual premium payable under each policy. Basis: Mortality Interest PMA92C20 for the male PFA92C20 for the female 4% per annum Expenses Initial 1,000 Renewal 5% of each premium payment [5] (ii) On I January 2004, 5,000 of these policies were still in force. Under 100 of these policies only the female life was alive. Both lives were alive under the other 4,900 policies. The company calculates provisions for the policies on a net premium basis, using PMA92C20 and PFA92C20 mortality for the male and female lives respectively and 4% per annum interest. During the calendar year 2004, there was one claim for death benefit, in respect of a policy where the female life only was alive at the start of the year. In addition, one male life died during the year under a policy where both lives were alive at the start of the year. 4,999 of the policies were in force at the end of the year. Calculate the mortality profit or loss for the group of 5,000 policies for the calendar year [9] [Total 14] CT5 S PLEASE TURN OVER

31 Subject CT5 (Contingencies Core Technical) September 2005 Examiners Report In general, this examination was done well by students who were well prepared. Several questions gave difficulties particularly Question 7 and 12(ii) the latter one being very challenging. To help students comments are attached to those questions where particular points are of relevance. Absence of comments can be indicate that the particular question was generally done well. 1 Adverse selection is the manner in which lives form part of a group, which acts against a controlled process of selecting the lives with respect to some characteristic that affects mortality or morbidity. An example is where a life insurance company does not distinguish between smokers and nonsmokers in proposals for term assurance cover. A greater proportion of smokers are likely to select this company in preference to a company that charges different rates to smokers and nonsmokers. This would be adverse to the company s selection process, if the company had assumed that its proportion of smokers was similar to that in the general population. Other examples were credited. 2 Occupation can have several direct effects on mortality and morbidity. Occupation determines a person s environment for 40 or more hours each week. The environment may be rural or urban, the occupation may involve exposure to harmful substances e.g. chemicals, or to potentially dangerous situations e.g. working at heights. Much of this is moderated by health and safety at work regulations. Some occupations are more healthy by their very nature e.g. bus drivers have a sedentary and stressful occupation while bus conductors are more active and less stressed. Some work environments e.g. pubs, give exposure to a less healthy lifestyle. Some occupations by their very nature attract more healthy workers. This may be accentuated by health checks made on appointment or by the need to pass regular health checks e.g. airline pilots. Some occupations can attract less healthy workers, for example, former miners who have left the mining industry as a result of ill health and then chosen to sell newspapers. This will inflate the mortality rates of newspaper sellers. A person s occupation largely determines their income, which permits them to adopt a particular lifestyle e.g. content and pattern of diet, quality of housing. This effect can be positive or negative e.g. overindulgence. Other appropriate examples were credited. 3 As t increases, t increases, but t p 0 decreases. At t = 80 approximately, the decrease in t p 0 is greater than the increase in t, hence f0 t t p 0 t decreases. A deceptively straightforward answer which many students struggled to find. The key point is to compare the 2 parameters as shown. Page 2

For part (i) assuming renewal expenses did not include the first premium (answer ) was also fully acceptable. Part (ii) was very challenging and very few students realised the extension of mortality profit/loss extended to joint life contracts involved reserve change costs on first death. Most just considered the first 2 components of the answer and in many cases failed to correctly cost this part. A few exceptional students did manage to reach the final result. 13 (i) Define a service table: l 26 t = no. of members aged 26 + t last birthday r 26 t = no. of members who retire age 26 + t last birthday sx t / s x = ratio of earnings in the year of age x + t to x + t + 1 to the earnings in the year of age x to x + 1 Page 9

The sum assured of 250,000 plus declared reversionary bonuses are payable at maturity or at the end of the year of death if earlier. (i) Show that the monthly premium is if the life insurance company assumes that future simple reversionary bonuses will be declared at the rate of 2% per annum and vesting at the end of each policy year (i.e. the death benefit does not include any bonus relating to the policy year of death). Basis: mortality interest initial expenses renewal expenses claims expenses AM92 Select 4% per annum 250 plus 50% of the gross annual premium 3% of the second and subsequent monthly premiums 300 on death; 150 on maturity [7] (ii) At age 60 exact, immediately before the premium then due, the life wishes to surrender the policy. The life insurance company calculates a surrender value equal to the gross retrospective policy value, assuming the same basis as in (i) above. Calculate the surrender value using the retrospective policy value at the end of the 25 th policy year immediately before the premium then due and just after the declared bonus has increased the sum assured plus reversionary bonuses to 375,000. Assume that the life insurance company has declared a simple bonus throughout the duration of the policy consistent with the bonus loading assumption used to derive the premium in (i) above. [6] (iii) State with a reason whether the surrender value would have been larger, the same or smaller than in (ii) above if the office had used the prospective gross premium policy value, on the same basis.
