Actuarial reserve reviews

Reserve review is part of our 'business as usual' process with many clients. We can provide one-off reviews for normal year-end work, cross checks on the work of others or due-diligence for Standard and Poors (S&P). We act as the actuarial function holder for a number of smaller clients and advise a wide range of clients in diverse markets on reserving matters.

The science behind establishing the best estimates has developed under Solvency II but we have always held to the simple principle of measurement; namely that no measurement is complete without some understanding of the uncertainty of the estimate. Sometimes pragmatic approaches are required, whilst on other occasions full regression models with standard statistical models can be deployed. We have broad experience in carrying out estimates for many different loss phenomena and lines of business, both live and run-off.
