About the event

Prime Re Academy is pleased to invite you to attend the workshop in Zurich, Switzerland during its Solency week in October 2018 where focus will be set on the following topic:

Risk, Capital and Solvency Models - an ORSA Perspective

The Swiss Solvency Test was implemented almost a decade ago and the experiences made with this tried-and-tested Swiss solution can serve as a basis for building quantitative risk, capital and solvency models for the purpose of an ORSA. The workshop familiarizes the participants with the tools they need to implement risk, capital and solvency models, and it enables them to put this acquired know-how into practice on the spot. This workshop takes place between the workshops “The Standard Model of the Swiss Solvency Test” and “The Standard Formula of Solvency II”. Therefore, the relating workshops can be combined at a reduced fee.

During the workshop we shall build up in a modular way a prototype internal model in Excel®. Participants should therefore bring along their own laptops. In particular we will consider:

– Components of the economic balance sheet and the Basic Own Funds

– Components of the risk and the Solvency Capital Requirement

– Reinsurance (proportional and non-proportional)

– Risk aggregation (Monte Carlo algorithmic, dependences and copulas, etc.)

– Meta-risks (parameter risk, replicating portfolios, deterministic stress scenarios, etc.)

Secondly, the participants shall apply the prototype internal model they have built to perform user tests. In particular they may consider:

– Portfolio planning

– Reinsurance optimisation

– Capital allocation
