Reinsurance

 

Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) draws on many years of experience on the subject of reinsurance, taking the perspective of both the buyer and the reinsurance provider. Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) therefore offers tailor-made advice on active and passive reinsurance as well as retrocession and other forms of risk transfer.

The experience of Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) ranges from the traditional proportional forms on the German market, such as quota share treaty or sum excess of loss treaty, to the more common non-proportional forms and tailor-made or structured reinsurance treaties. This applies across all lines of business.

Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) supports smaller insurance companies and start-ups without their own claims experience as well as large insurance companies that have been in business for many years. The existing claims experience is taken into account in the reinsurance requirements as well as in the quotation methods to be used. The correct handling of the often sparse data is essential.

Assessing the various forms of risk transfer requires actuarial know-how and experience in the reinsurance market – Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) will be happy to support you in both.

Quotation in Reinsurance

Determining the technical price of a reinsurance contract, i.e. the expected claims burden plus expected costs as well as risk premiums or capital costs, is essential for both the reinsurer and the ceding company. The reinsurance provider needs the technical quotation to define the price and to determine its margin. For the cedant, a technical price independently determined by Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) helps with the decision-making process when purchasing. In addition, every insurance company should consider the appropriateness of its reinsurance structure, for example as part of its risk management and actuarial function.

Actuarial pricing in reinsurance is usually very individual. For non-proportional treaties, Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) determines an independent technical quotation based on burning cost, Pareto and simulation methods as well as using exposure methods. For proportional cessions, Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) determines the expected loss and expense ratio, taking into account major loss per risk and catastrophe losses. In addition to individual data, market information is also included in the quotation.

Daniel Schoberl is an actuarial consultant at Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK). In his course of study at the Graz University of Technology he focused on operations research and statistics. For his diploma thesis he developed chemometric models using infrared spectoscopy. His focus at MSK is on Solvency II and reinsurance.

Optimization

The motivation for concluding one or more reinsurance contracts can be complex. It ranges from the homogenization of the portfolio to the ceding of peak risks and thus the reduction of net volatility to the direct reduction of capital requirements, for example to improve the solvency ratio.

For its clients' portfolios, Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) reproduces various reinsurance orders in a simulation model. The clients' observed gross losses are used to calibrate the model individually. Based on a predefined rate level, Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) determines the "good" programs and makes recommendations on the future reinsurance structure.

Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) does not just look at one-year periods, but also examines the long-term effects of reinsurance programs on all relevant key figures. These include key figures from the income statement, the balance sheet according to German commercial code (HGB) and the solvency according to Solvency II. The overall goal is to ensure that long-term effects such as the development of the equalization reserve do not lead to undesirable surprises in the coming years.

Natural Disaster Modelling (Cat)

Looking at the claim time series of insurance lines affected by natural disasters, they are characterized by their high volatility, both in terms of probability of occurrence and the regions affected. This in turn makes forecasting and assessing natural catastrophe risk particularly challenging.

The probabilities of occurrence of natural disasters are usually determined by the modelling agencies AIR, RMS or EQECAT. These are based on meteorological models and the practical results often differ from them substantially.

Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) also uses the results of these agencies for risk modelling. But in addition, Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) uses the individual claims experience of the company to obtain an additional assessment with the help of mathematical models. The forecasting quality of these models has been confirmed many times in many years of experience.

This gives clients a second perspective on their natural catastrophe exposure. In addition, the deviations between the model results of the commercial providers are easier to interpret if one's own exposure is known in detail.

Reinsurance Settlements

Complex reinsurance structures, a high number of business partners or even marketable additional agreements such as stabilization clauses, replenishments, AAD and AAL – there are numerous reasons that can increase the time required for the settlement of existing contracts. In addition, there is often a multitude of different data sources from which the relevant information has to be assembled.

Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) supports insurers in the regular preparation of their reinsurance settlements. This can be done by outsourcing the settlement modalities or by providing customized settlement tools to automate and standardize processes and workflows.

In addition to the optimization of the formal accounting process, the integration of further evaluation options in the accounting systems is also conceivable within the scope of such standardization. Examples of this are the development of multi-year profitability evaluations per contract or reinsurer or the conception of interfaces or output templates to fulfil existing reporting requirements. The overriding goal is to establish efficient structures that also guarantee a valid overview of the amount of reinsurance relief at all times.

Settlement of Reinsurance Contracts

The settlement of reinsurance contracts is not always completed as originally intended. Reasons for that can be of administrative nature or result from the business policy.

In most cases, the commutation takes place under a mutual agreement. In some cases, however, the value of the portfolio is disputed or the commutation is initiated at the instigation of one party only, e.g. within the framework of a Solvent Scheme of Arrangement. In particular, long-tail business (e.g. liability insurance) or portfolios of smaller size are usually subject to major uncertainties with regard to the remaining run-off. Depending on the individual portfolio structure, different valuation approaches or scenarios therefore have to be examined in order to obtain as complete a picture as possible for remaining run-off risks and potentials.

Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) provides expert opinions on the economic value for run-off portfolios including the assessment of safety margins. In this context, the limits of actuarial methodologies are discussed.

Arbitrations

Reinsurance arrangements usually include an arbitration clause that applies in the event that breaches of duty occur. Often, different opinions on the contract wording can be resolved between the parties without having to involve this legal authority. However, if this is not the case, the matter needs to be clarified and settled by arbitration.

Actuarial topics can also play a role in arbitration proceedings, e.g. with regard to the quantification of claims for damages. If, for example, the aim is to reverse a contract and its transactions in general or individual components of it, the relevant historical cash flows have to be determined and, if necessary, adjusted to current value ratios. In this context, interest effects are usually to be included as a compensation component, which reflects the alternative use of the historical funds.

Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) has experience as an expert witness in arbitration proceedings and provides support in actuarial issues in this regard. In addition to purely quantitative analyses, this includes the drafting of opinions or expert reports in the context of actuarial topics.

Placement

Reinsurance relationships are often of a longer-term nature. However, when the need changes, expands or newly arises, the question arises as to potential contract partners as well as the amount of an appropriate price for the cover. In addition to purely monetary considerations, other criteria often play a role, such as cover inclusions or customer service towards the cedant. In the case of more complex coverage concepts or non-standard business, the choice of potential contract partners may also be limited.

Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) has many years of experience and extensive contacts in the reinsurance market and offers support in the placement of reinsurance contracts. This can include approaching potential contract partners and communicating with them, as well as the final comparison and classification of cover offers and prices.
