Example text

More recently, in the UK, Canada and the USA, there has been a trend towards demutualization, which means the transition of a mutual company to a proprietary company, through issuing shares (or cash) to the with-profit policyholders. Although it would appear that a mutual insurer would have marketing advantages, as participating policyholders receive all the profits and other benefits of ownership, the advantages cited by companies who have demutualized include increased ability to raise capital, clearer corporate structure and improved efficiency.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of each for (a) the insurer and (b) the policyholder? 6 It is common for insurers to design whole life contracts with premiums payable only up to age 80. Why? 7 Andrew is retired. He has no pension, but has capital of $500 000. He is considering the following options for using the money: (a) Purchase an annuity from an insurance company that will pay a level amount for the rest of his life. (b) Purchase an annuity from an insurance company that will pay an amount that increases with the cost of living for the rest of his life.

We can relate the force of mortality to the survival function from birth, S0 . 7) gives µx = = 1 S0 (x) − S0 (x + dx) lim S0 (x) dx→0+ dx 1 d − S0 (x) . S0 (x) dx Thus, µx = −1 d S0 (x). 9) From standard results in probability theory, we know that the probability density function for the random variable Tx , which we denote fx , is related to the distribution function Fx and the survival function Sx by fx (t) = d d Fx (t) = − Sx (t). 9) that µx = f0 (x) . S0 (x) We can also relate the force of mortality function at any age x + t, t > 0, to the lifetime distribution of Tx .
