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.

    Retail banking is going through a period of substantial change as it moves into the digital age. Banks have large amounts of data about their customers and about their risks. Open data application programming interface (APIs) and data science are enabling banks to use their data to offer innovative and sometimes personalised services. Data science is also adding value in risk areas such as fraud detection and cyber security. At the same time, the move to online banking is making it easier for firms including fintechs to enter banking without having to establish branch networks.

    Cash-flow driven investing is a game-changer for DB pension funds navigating their end-game. Suitable for sponsors who want to reduce risks on their balance sheets.

    Running off the £2 trillion of UK corporate sector defined benefit liabilities in an efficient and effective fashion is the biggest challenge facing the UK pensions industry. Trustees and sponsors overseeing those schemes need to be clear on their target end-state and the associated journey plan – but too few have well articulated and robust plans.

    The actuarial skill set has much to offer the banking industry. So many of the skills that actuaries acquire during their working life translate across to the world of banking and yet banking is perceived as an alien environment to many actuaries. But is it?

    Covid-19 has required an urgent and cross-practice initiative to facilitate the extensive impact this pandemic has across all industries. IFoA members have been keen to contribute in a different way, so we developed the IFoA Covid-19 Action Taskforce [ICAT] to coordinate our effort, with a more efficient governance.

    We have over 500 volunteers and countless topics which we have amalgamated into 93 workstreams.
