Pictures of Super Models – SOA webcast

August 2, 2019

12:00 – 1:30pm Eastern


I will be the presenter at this SOA webcast.  If you like me, Super Models, or continuing education credit, this is the webcast for you!

What is a “super model”? In this context, super models are developed based on rigorous data analytics techniques, and they provide a range of potential outcomes and financial metrics that can be used to evaluate when material changes are necessary. “Assumptions” can be extracted from super models for various applications, but the super model itself is more robust than that. It is a framework for analysis and risk management, not a point-in-time set of numbers.

This session will emphasize data visualization and communication of highly technical concepts to colleagues and non-actuarial stakeholders. There will be examples based on industry-level policyholder behavior data from the U.S. annuity market, but the concepts transcend product lines.
