In response, Aon Benfield has launched a suite of new components within ReMetrica to provide a fully stochastic framework that evaluates the key risks of long term products and their uncertainties, plus how these risks may be mitigated through reinsurance and capital markets solutions. Holistic Solution Aon Benfield has undertaken extensive development to bring the best of ReMetrica’s stochastic modelling to its life, health and pensions clients. Its powerful modelling capabilities – which can also be set to deterministic mode – enable insurers to test a range of different strategies and scenarios for a variety of applications. It also provides a combined modelling solution for composite insurers. Key Benefits • ffective evaluation of reinsurance structures: Assessment E of different reinsurance structures on a stochastic (notably for excess of loss) or deterministic basis. • Solvency II: We augment clients’ Solvency II infrastructure by using ReMetrica to model scenarios such as a blast at a sports stadium and to advise on reinsurance solutions that could reduce capital requirements. • Optimise capital requirements: Models a comprehensive suite of life, health and pensions risks in order to optimise capital requirements. • Risk appetite: Gain insight into the benefit of reinsurance with the ability to measure the volatility ceded. This will assist with work around risk appetite. • tress testing functionalities: Improve understanding of S key risks and their sensitivities, including diversification benefits. • Transparency: The model allows the user to follow and dissect inputs and outputs from any nominated scenario, as well as analysing simple interactions. Life, Health and Pensions Modelling Enhancements The ‘multi-state’ model concept for actuarial applications underpins the modelling for long term business and means that providers can map the journey of policyholders throughout their lives. Traditionally this has been used for health and disability but now ReMetrica can apply this to all lines of business including assurance and annuities. ReMetrica provides an intuitive modelling framework familiar to the actuary, while providing more transparency, granularity of data and accurate modelling options, such as incorporating the changes in the risk of death after the occurrence of a disease. All this is achieved through user-friendly, purpose-built components that do not require any programming.
