CMI Working Paper 112

Working Paper 112: Additional analyses of the experience of pension annuities in payment, 2011-2014
Important note: Whilst processing the data underlying Working Paper 117, we received resubmissions of data covering the years 2011-2014 data from several insurers. This has created some uncertainty around the dataset underlying both Working Paper 101 and Working Paper 112. We have reissued these papers with a prominent “health warning” to see Working Paper 117 before using either of these papers.

Working Paper 112 was originally published in November 2018 and reissued in January 2019 (see above). The working paper describes additional analyses of pension annuities in payment over the period 2011 to 2014. 

The working paper describes additional analyses of pension annuities in payment over the period 2011 to 2014. This follows Working Paper 101 which was issued in July 2017 alongside the “all offices” results for 2011-2014.

This paper sets out the results of two separate pieces of analysis:

  • indicative graduations of the 2011-2014 data, including by product; and
  • multivariate analysis of the experience using Generalised Linear Models.

Both analyses are intended to help us consider whether it is appropriate to produce new graduated mortality tables for pension annuities in payment and, if so:

  • What factors we should include in the tables, in addition to age and gender; and
  • What issues we may encounter in the data, and how we should resolve such issues.

We do not intend issuing new tables based on the dataset used for these analyses; instead we will use a more recent period once we have that dataset. Undertaking these analyses is intended to facilitate speedier production of new tables and making them available in this paper gives Subscribers an opportunity to comment on our preliminary thinking. We have included a number of specific questions at the end of the paper and would be very pleased to receive comments on these; comments can be sent to annuities@cmilimited.co.uk preferably by 31 December 2018, to enable us to take account of these views in producing draft tables.

Note: the paper and accompanying spreadsheet are available to Authorised Users only.

An Excel spreadsheet of the indicative rates is released alongside this paper.

  • Finance in the Public Interest Series

    16 March 2021 - 23 March 2021

    Spaces available

    There is widening debate that many of our social, financial and regulatory institutions need to be rethought so that we can create more sustainable futures, particularly in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the policy/macro-economic response to the pandemic and how it affects consumers, as well as the impending climate crisis. This multi-day series of three keynote webinars, individually presented by leading economist John Kay, Sir Paul Collier, Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government, Ashok Gupta, Chair at Mercer Ltd, and Nico Aspinall, Chief Investment Officer at B&CE, will open up discussion on these essential topics. The series will culminate in a panel session with Chief Economist of the Bank of England, Andy Haldane.

    This webinar provides an overview of the state of the UK protection market, and how different insurers are using different levels of sophistication to price (such as using customer demand models). It considers how insurers have implemented these sophisticated pricing techniques, and the practical challenges they have faced.

    What is stewardship and how has the landscape changed under the 2020 UK Stewardship Code? How does effective stewardship create long term value for beneficiaries and what roles do asset owners and asset managers play in active stewardship. This webinar will offer answers to these questions in a practical approach to stewardship reporting.

    Mis-estimation risk is a key element of demographic risk, and past work has focused on mis-estimation risk on a run-off basis.  However, this does not meet the requirements of regulatory regimes like Solvency II, which demands that capital requirements are set through the prism of a finite horizon like one year.  This paper presents a value-at-risk approach to mis-estimation risk suitable for Solvency II work.
