Case Study: Market risk modelling

[this page | pdf | references | back links]

Nematrian was asked to advise a non-life insurer on its internal market risk model for Solvency II risk management purposes. The insurer was keen to adopt a model that was ‘market consistent’ and Nematrian’s advice included:


-          Types of uses to which a market risk model could be put and for which of these it is most helpful to adopt market consistent approaches


-          What impact incorporating market consistent methodologies might have on the predictive ability of a market risk model


-          How a ‘risk neutral’ distribution for different types of assets might be identified in practice


-          The merits of blending market implied information with past data and expert judgement when developing market risk models and how in practice this might be done
