PPOs are a significant feature of insurers' and reinsurers' balance sheets already and are having an impact on pricing and capital modelling efforts of GI actuaries. The Periodical Payments Orders Working Party has been at the forefront of advising GI actuaries about the impacts on their work, such as the need to use life insurance techniques in reserving.
The Periodical Payment Orders Working Party also conducts an annual survey of the UK motor insurance industry about their experience of PPOs. This has enabled:
- creation and publication of statistics about number, quantum and nature of PPOs as awarded by the courts
- qualitative feedback from the industry about their concerns and practices as regards to PPOs.
The Working Party will compile a mortality table of impaired lives due to brain and spinal injury following a severe trauma
The data is compiled from the UK medical research database of patient records as entered by GPs. Whilst cause of injury is not recorded we hope that the data will be sufficiently close to motor-related accidents that the mortality is a good match. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that such an investigation has been attempted. There is considerable call in the insurance industry for such analysis to help pricing, reserving and capital modelling.
The PPO working party operates within a terms of reference.

Cancer incidence and mortality vary by region and socioeconomic status. Modelling the structure development and trends of cancer risk is important for insurance purposes and can impact pricing and reserving in related health insurance fields such as critical illness insurance and care provision.
A panel discussion with investment representatives discussing the impact of investment on climate change and vice versa.
This event is part of The Road to Glasgow: IFoA’s Sustainability Thought Leadership Series which will provide a platform for prominent contributors so that our members and others can understand the perspectives of a wide range of parties interested in the climate debate.
Climate change is one of the greatest risks facing our world today. Addressing it will require multi-faceted solutions. Through this panel session, we will explore the different levers that can be used to meet net-zero targets including climate science and data, government engagement, and mobilising green finance.
How governments and societies collectively respond to the climate crisis is increasingly being analysed through the lens of intergenerational fairness. Our expert panel will assess and explore the extent to which inter-generous fairness is being considered in climate policies, the lessons from those countries who are leading the way on fairness and justice in climate interventions, and more.
This practical course is aimed at actuaries at any stage of their career who want to develop their own growth mindset and apply it to their work setting and personal or professional lifelong learning. The content of the course builds on the lecture given by Dr Helen Wright on Growth Mindset as part of the President’s 2021 Lecture series, and will be delivered over a period of 2 months, from mid-October to early December.
The climate crisis and the degradation of our planet will affect societies everywhere. How we address these threats will require solutions that transcend borders. As a global profession, the actuarial community is well-placed to consider and propose effective risk management solutions to help manage the climate crisis.
Content will be aimed at all actuaries looking to understand the issues surrounding mental health in insurance and in particular those looking to ensure products and processes widen access for, and are most useful to, those experiencing periods of poor mental health.
