Model Validation under Solvency II
The analysis and validation whether the standard formula under Solvency II is appropriate for a company and its risk exposure and structure is a particularly exciting challenge actuaries are facing with the introduction of Solvency II. Using concrete examples from the context of Solvency II we will introduce various validation techniques and procedures which can be applied to both, the Solvency II standard formula and more sophisticated internal model aspects.
Organised by the EAA - European Actuarial Academy GmbH.
The seminar targets actuaries and non-actuaries who work in the field of life insurance and want to get an introduction to and overview of best-practice validation techniques for standard formula and internal model calculations under Solvency II. It aims at giving a first introduction to the topic of model validation in the context of Solvency II and will be particularly relevant for an audience with basic knowledge of the standard formula (for life insurers).
Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop computer with Microsoft Excel installed.
Purpose and Nature
In this seminar, we use the risk-modules "market" and "life" and corresponding sub-modules of the Solvency II standard formula as examples to explain different validation techniques for actuarial models and their applications in the context of Solvency II. This includes questions such as how to choose the basic modelling approach for specific risk factor as well as the specific choice of the parameters and respective validations. In addition, validation approaches are presented for the aggregation formulae involved and their underlying assumptions.
