CMI Working Papers 34 and 35

CMI Working Paper 35 contains the final graduations of the CMI SAPS experience for the period 2000 to 2006 based on data collected by 30 June 2007

A description of the methodology used to produce the graduations is outlined and the key statistics for each of the graduations are summarised. It also provides a summary of points made in feedback during the consultation on the draft tables published in CMI Working Paper 32 and the Committees response to this feedback.

It is the responsibility of any actuary or other person using a published mortality table to ensure that it is appropriate for the particular purpose to which it is put.

These tables have been approved by the Management Board for adoption by the IFoA. It should be noted that adoption implies that the IFoA is satisfied that the tables have been well-constructed and subjected to rigorous peer review, such that the IFoA is happy for the tables to be published in its name. It does not carry any implication that the tables are appropriate as a standard for any particular purpose. 

The mortality rates are also available in a spreadsheet and in version 3.3 of the CMI Tables Program (STP).

CMI Working Paper 34 sets out the methodology and assumptions underlying the dataset that has been used for the graduations contained in Working Paper 35

It also documents recent changes to the methodology and assumptions and the reasoning behind these changes. Working Paper 34 refers to Comparison of Approaches for Calculating Initial Exposure

Comment on the graduated tables added on 31 December 2008

The CMI SAPS Mortality Committee wishes to draw to the attention of users of the ‘S1’ series of mortality tables that female mortality rates are higher than male mortality rates at ages 55 and 56 in the ‘all pensioner’ series S1PFA and S1PMA tables. This is a genuine feature of the data at these ages and also at some younger ages. As there was little or no data at these younger ages, these tables were extended to younger ages in an arbitrary manner (see section 6 of CMI Working Paper 34); as a result this feature persists down to age 28 for qx and 29 for μx. This feature does not appear in the other graduations.

The Committee regrets that this feature of the ‘all pensioner’ graduations was not drawn to readers' attention in CMI Working Paper 35. Users of the tables are reminded that they should be aware of how they have been constructed and should only use them when it is deemed appropriate by the user to do so.

Summary data: all classes of pensioner, males, split by pension amount

Summary data: all classes of pensioner, females, split by pension amount

Summary data: all classes of pensioners, males and females, not split by pension amount

Please note that central exposed to risk is shown in these spreadsheets.

    The Actuaries’ Carbon Collaboration (ACC) is a group of actuaries and other professionals working towards a coherent understanding of the issues around greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by considering them in an actuarial context.

    Emissions into and absorption from the atmosphere can be modelled in the same way that we model variable cash flows, including the impacts of uncertain quantities and timing. The ACC’s work investigates both the insights that this analogy provides and its limitations.

    This talk presents the work of the Data and Modelling workstream of the IFoA Mental Health Working Party. We explore data and modelling considerations in the risk assessment and underwriting of mental health conditions. We will also consider how newer risk factors and improved data availability might open up opportunities for additional underwriting and product designs.

    Artificial Intelligence is heralded as a game-changer to the ways industries use data, with the insurance industry especially looking to embrace these new technologies. This brings many questions – not least around data privacy, ethics, potential biases and so on – with regulators increasingly interested in developments.

    Moreover, whilst the stunning progress of specific technologies such as Watson and Alphazero made headlines some years ago, current commercial applications of AI remain far from mature.

    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

    This session will focus on the transformation roadmap of the healthcare sector in KSA and the role of actuarial capabilities in enhancing its evolution to the desired end stage as per the objectives of the Vision 2030. The discussion will focus how the system has evolved so far and shed light on  the expected future changes. Through examining  the transformation, we will highlight how the sector is and can use actuarial  expertise to not only assist with this transformation but also use basic actuarial principles to identify the key risks and their respective mitigation strategies.

    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 IFoA's Infrastructure Working Party, led by Chris Lewin, will present its new introductory guide to infrastructure investment, which will be published on the IFoA web-site prior to the webinar.   Those readers whose institutions have already taken the plunge into infrastructure will know that it is a highly complex and diverse field of activity.   This guide does not explore all the matters which investors take into account, but it does discuss many of the more important points, including the risks and past returns, benchmarking, and ESG and SDG considerations.    Attendees will be invi
