4 Guarantees and Options in Participating Contracts Interest rate guarantee cliquet style. Participation guarantee: Policyholders participate on the company s surplus. Influenced by regulatory prerequisites and insurer s management decisions about surplus distribution. Surrender option. Problems: Plunging stock markets, low interest rates. Insurers are stuck with old, nonhedged guarantees. APRIA Tokyo, August 2006 D. Bauer RNV of Participating Life Insurance Contracts 4 / 28

6 What s new? Introduction Financial strength is taken into account (via the reserve quota). Surplus distribution model(s) adequate for many markets, in particular the German market. Decomposition of the contract, separation of the embedded options. Allows for the separate securitization/hedging of the embedded options. We can derive an equilibrium condition for a fair contract.

8 of insurer s financial situation Insurance Company and Insurance Contract Development of the Liabilities Assets A t A t Liabilities L t R t A t Insurer s assets A t, where A + t = A t d t is the value right after dividend payments d t. The evolution of the liabilities and the dividends depend on the evolution of the assets and the reserve quota x t = R t L t, i.e. ( L t+1 = L t+1 A t+1, A+ t, L t, x t,... ) and ( d t+1 = d t+1 A t+1, A+ t, L t, x t,... ).

10 Insurance Contract Introduction Insurance Company and Insurance Contract Development of the Liabilities Assets A t A t Liabilities L t R t A t The insured pays a single premium L 0 at time t = 0 and receives L T at maturity, independent of whether he/she is alive or not. Analyze this contract under different surplus distribution schemes. APRIA Tokyo, August 2006 D. Bauer RNV of Participating Life Insurance Contracts 8 / 28
11 Distribution schemes 1 Insurance Company and Insurance Contract Development of the Liabilities 1 MUSTcase (only obligatory payments considered): Yeartoyear cliquet style guarantee on the liabilities (minimum rate g). Proportion δ of earnings on book value have to be credited to policyholder s account. "Rest" of the earnings on book values paid out as dividend. "Rest" of the earnings on market values remains in the company (reserves). 2 IScase (typical behavior of German insurer modeled): Target rate z is credited to the policyholder s account as long as the reserve quota stays within a given range [a, b]. If quota is outside the range this rate is adjusted. Dividends amount to a portion α of any surplus credited to the policy reserves. APRIA Tokyo, August 2006 D.

25 Decomposition Introduction Dividends are paid out and reduce the value of the reference portfolio (but not the asset allocation): Cumulated present value: D 0. If the return of the reference portfolio is so poor that granting the minimum interest rate guarantee would result in negative reserves, capital is needed in order to fulfill obligations (capital shots c t ) these increase the value of the reference portfolio; however, the asset allocation stays the same: Cumulated present value: C 0.

35 Discretization Approach (1) Financial Market Monte Carlo Approach Discretization Approach Between two policy anniversaries, the evolution of the value V t of the insurance contract solely depends on the evolution of the underlying assets r t and A t. Given the state variables (reserve quota, account value) at the beginning of the period, the value of the contract at the beginning of the period can be determined using PDE methods given the value at the end of the period (FeynmanKac type). For constant short rate: BlackScholes PDE, integral solution (heat equation). For stochastic short rate: Numerical methods (finite difference scheme). APRIA Tokyo, August 2006 D.

Similar to Tanskanen and Lukkarinen (2004) 1, a backward iteration can be used to compute the value of the contract via a discretization of the state space using interpolation methods at the anniversaries. 1 Fair Valuation of PathDependent Participating Life Insurance Contracts.
