CMI Working Papers 5, 6, 7, 46, 47 and 48

The CMI Income Protection (IP) Committee has produced new graduations of individual IP sickness inception and termination experience using the multiple state model approach described in CMIR 12 in six working papers

The graduations are based on the experience of male, occupation class 1 lives for individual IP business for 1991-98 and will be referred to as IPM 1991-98.

The complexity of IP risks and limitations in the data have contributed towards the work producing these graduations being spread over a number of years and the results, including graduated sickness inception and termination rates, being presented in five inter-related working papers, totalling nearly 300 pages.

To help practitioners benefit from this large body of work, an overview paper has also been produced.

CMI Working Paper 48: An Overview of the Sickness Inception and Termination Rate Graduations provides an overview of the work presented in the five inter-related working papers

CMI Working Paper 48 summarises both the methodology and the key features of the graduations and experience. It is hoped that this paper will meet the needs of many IP practitioners on a stand-alone basis, and that it will also serve to provide an introduction and contextual ‘road map’ for the longer papers for those readers who wish to follow through all the detail.

CMI Working Paper 46: and CMI Working paper 47 present the work undertaken to produce the graduations of the sickness inception experience

CMI Working Paper 46: Background Papers on the Analysis of CMI Individual Income Protection Claim Records. This paper contains four short papers that present features of the claims data and changes to the initial processing of this data and report results of background investigations.

CMI Working paper 47: The Graduation of Sickness Rates for the CMI Individual Income Protection Experience 1991-98 of Males, Occupation Class 1. This is the main paper describing the development of the new graduations of the sickness inception experience.

CMI Working Paper 5, Working Paper 6 and Working Paper 7 present the work undertaken to produce the graduations of the termination experience

This work was carried out before embarking on the graduation of the inception experience as the multi-state model demands this.

CMI Working Paper 5: The Graduation of Claim Recovery and Mortality Intensities for the Individual IP Experience for 1991-98 of Males, Occupation Class 1. This is the main paper describing the development of the new graduations of the termination experience.

CMI Working Paper 6: Date-related Features of Individual Income Protection Claims 1975-1998. This paper describes some features which emerged during the detailed examination of the claims records during the course of the work undertaken to produce graduations of the termination experience.

CMI Working Paper 7: The Claim Termination Experience of Income Protection Business, 1991-98, for Other Male Occupations, Females and Group. This paper compares the experience of other subsets of the 1991-98 data with the new termination graduations, which were based on the male, class 1 experience.

These Working Papers refer to the Committee’s intention to recommend the IPM 1991-98 rates for ‘adoption’ by the IFoA

It was subsequently agreed that the concept of adoption was no longer relevant and this was not pursued. It should not be inferred that there was any dilution of quality standards in respect of the IPM 1991-98 tables.

    The purpose of this research paper is to explore enterprise risk management lessons which can be learnt from the Covid-19 pandemic in preparation for potential future pandemics as well as other “gray rhino” or “black swan” events. This paper is not intended to be an all-encompassing solution to the issues presented by Covid-19; rather, the content has been provided to help drive discussions regarding how risk management processes may need to evolve in line with the dynamic nature of the underlying risks that they sometimes need to capture.

    The role of Non-Executive Directors has become increasingly challenging and critical over the past few years.

    Big picture thinking, Governance knowledge, Independent mindset, Ambassador potential and Energy and commitment: these are the essential skills sought in a successful NED, according to the Chartered Governance Institute (UK & Ireland).

    In parallel, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria are increasingly key and used by investors to measure the sustainability and ethical impact of investing in an organisation.

    This webinar will cover:

    • Some background on the risks of misselling in an ESG context, including the DWS case

    • Achieving positive impact is a strong antidote to the risks of greenwashing or ESG misselling, however this risks having a tension with fiduciary responsibilities

    • This tension can be resolved with a concept called Universal Ownership

    • Under Universal ownership, investors have an appetite to make a loss in order to achieve positive impact, and yet still have no compromise on their fiduciary responsibilities

    In the UK, the idea of collective defined contribution (CDC) pension schemes is gaining more attention with the launch of the Royal Mail CDC scheme, the first of its kind in the UK. Our recent research on CDC plans investigates the sources of the putative benefits of CDC schemes: the smoothing of pensions for members.  Using an attribution analysis to burrow into the scheme design, the reason for the smoothing of members' pensions is explained and understood.

    Social care reform has long been on the to-do list for successive governments over the last two decades. In February, the government’s proposed reforms to adult social care [including cap on care costs] was published. Against this backdrop of funding promise and rising National Insurance taxation, in this session we will debate the resilience of these new proposals, the impact of future demand for care services and what role for the insurance industry and the important role it has played in long-term care funding in other countries where public-private partnership works.

    Mortality and morbidity risk varies by variables such as age, sex and smoking. In traditional actuarial experience analysis, these variables, and certain combinations thereof can be explored. However, with the wealth of data now available it is becoming increasingly challenging to identify the key drivers of experience and account for the interaction between different variables. A univariate approach often compares apples and pears, for example males are more likely to smoke and have larger policies than females. Likewise, variable interactions are missed unless specifically included.
