Wüthrch Abstract We assume that the clams lablty process satses the dstrbutonree chanladder model assumptons. For clams reservng at tme we predct the total ultmate clam wth the normaton avalable at tme and smlarly at tme we predct the same total ultmate clam wth the (updated) normaton avalable at tme. The clams development result at tme or accountng year ( ] s then dened to be the derence between these two successve predctons or the total ultmate clam. n [6 0] we have analyzed ths clams development result and we have quanted ts predcton uncertanty. Here we smply mody and llustrate the results obtaned n [6 0]. We emphasze that these results have drect consequences or solvency consderatons and were (under the new rsadusted solvency regulaton) already mplemented n ndustry.

NTROUTON We consder the problem o quantyng the uncertanty assocated wth the development o clams reserves or pror accdent years n general nsurance. We assume that we are at tme and we predct the total ultmate clam at tme (wth the avalable normaton up to tme ) and one perod later at tme we predct the same total ultmate clam wth the updated normaton avalable at tme. The derence between these two successve predctons s the socalled clams development result or accountng year ( ]. The realzaton o ths clams development result has a drect mpact on the prot & loss (P&L) statement and on the nancal strength o the nsurance company. Thereore t also needs to be studed or solvency purposes. Here we analyze the predcton o the clams development result and the possble luctuatons around ths predcton (predcton uncertanty). Bascally we answer two questons that are o practcal relevance: asualty Actuaral ocety EForum Fall

We analyze the uncertanty n ths predcton. Ths s a prospectve vew: how ar can the realzaton o the clams development result devate rom 0? Remar: we dscuss below why the clams development result s predcted by 0. (b) n the P&L statement at tme one then obtans an observaton or the clams development result. We analyze whether ths observaton s wthn a reasonable range around 0 or whether t s an outler. Ths s a retrospectve vew. Moreover we dscuss the possble categorzaton o ths uncertanty. o let us start wth the descrpton o the budget statement and o the P&L statement or an example we reer to Table.

Poston d) corresponds to expenses such as acquston expenses head oce expenses etc. Poston e) corresponds to the nancal returns generated on the balance sheet/assets. All these postons are typcally wellunderstood. They are predcted at an. year (budget values) and one has ther observatons at ec. 3 year n the P&L statement whch descrbes the nancal closng o the nsurance company or accountng year ( ]. asualty Actuaral ocety EForum Fall

We analyze ths poston wthn the ramewor o the dstrbutonree chanladder (L) method.

For the dstrbutonree L method ths has rst been done by Mac [7]. The study o the total uncertanty o the ull runo s a longterm vew. Ths classcal vew n clams reservng s very mportant or solvng solvency questons and almost all stochastc clams reservng methods whch have been proposed up to now concentrate on ths long term vew (see WüthrchMerz [9]). However n the present wor we concentrate on a second mportant vew the shortterm vew. The shortterm vew s mportant or a varety o reasons: asualty Actuaral ocety EForum Fall

A shortterm vew s relevant or management decsons as actons need to be taen on a regular bass. Note that most actons n an nsurance company are usually done on a yearly bass. These are or example nancal closngs prcng o nsurance products premum adustments etc. Relected through the annual nancal statements and reports the shortterm perormance o the company s o nterest and mportance to regulators clents nvestors ratng agences stocmarets etc. ts consstency wll ultmately have an mpact on the nancal strength and the reputaton o the company n the nsurance maret. Hence our goal s to study the development o the clams reserves on a yearly bass where we assume that the clams development process satses the assumptons o the dstrbutonree chanladder model.
