Ruark: delighted to assist with the SOA Pri-2012 Private Retirement Plans Mortality Tables

While we still love our individual annuity work, we were delighted to assist the SOA in the compilation and processing of pension mortality data for the Pri-2012 mortality tables.


How much is 1% A/E improvement worth to you?

Sneak peek from the upcoming SOA Equity-Based Insurance Guarantees Conference.

This is one handy way to quantify the value of our VA and FIA industry policyholder behavior experience studies and predictive analytics capabilities.  Yes, $ millions of risk reduction, since we can typically improve Actual/Expected ratios by more than 1% relative to what companies can do when using only their own data, which makes this endeavor well worthwhile compared to costs.  Again, our work is not an expense, it is an investment in risk management with quantifiable benefits.

Hope to see you in Chicago November 10-12, including the Bridging the Gap seminar on November 10.

Policyholder Behavior is the focus at this SOA seminar

We will have a lot to do there -- 🔥case study on Fixed Indexed Annuity income utilization using credibility theory in a predictive analytics context, a review of policyholder behavior experience data findings across the industry including some newly emerging data and interrelationships in key areas, and much more.

Hope to see you there!  Bridging the Gap seminar on Nov 10, which leads into the Equity-Based Insurance Guarantees Conference Nov 11-12.

Unlocking -- feel like you've done this before?

My fellow actuaries, I think there is a better way.  Let's discuss "How to Get Real Results in Policyholder Behavior Modeling" at session 134 of the SOA Annual Meeting.
