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.

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
