Financial Modeling, Actuarial Valuation and Solvency in

Risk management for financial institutions is one of the key topics the financial industry has to deal with.

The present volume is a mathematically rigorous text on solvency modeling.

Currently, there are many new developments in this area in the financial and insurance industry (Basel III and Solvency II), but none of these developments provides a fully consistent and comprehensive framework for the analysis of solvency questions.

Merz and Wüthrich combine ideas from financial mathematics (no-arbitrage theory, equivalent martingale measure), actuarial sciences (insurance claims modeling, cash flow valuation) and economic theory (risk aversion, probability distortion) to provide a fully consistent framework.

Within this framework they then study solvency questions in incomplete markets, analyze hedging risks, and study asset-and-liability management questions, as well as issues like the limited liability options, dividend to shareholder questions, the role of re-insurance, etc.

This work embeds the solvency discussion (and long-term liabilities) into a scientific framework and is intended for researchers as well as practitioners in the financial and actuarial industry, especially those in charge of internal risk management systems.

Readers should have a good background in probability theory and statistics, and should be familiar with popular distributions, stochastic processes, martingales, etc.

Author : Mario Massari
Published by John Wiley & SonsPublished since 2014-01-07

This book presents the main valuation approaches that can beused to value financial institutions.

By sketching 1) the differentbusiness models of banks (both commercial and investment banks) andinsurance companies (life, property and casualty and reinsurance);2) the structure and peculiarities of financial institutions’reporting and financial statements; and 3) the main features ofregulatory capital frameworks for banking and insurance (ie BaselIII, Solvency II), the book addresses why such elements make thevaluation of financial institutions different from the valuation ofnon-financial companies.

The book then features the valuation models that can be used todetermine the value of banks and insurance companies including theDiscounted Cash Flow, Dividend Discount Model, and Residual IncomeModel (with the appropriate estimation techniques for the cost ofcapital and cash flow in financial industries).

The main techniquesto perform the relative valuation of financial institutions arethen presented: along the traditional multiples (P/E, P/BV, P/TBV,P/NAV), the multiples based on industry-specific value drivers arediscussed (for example, P/Pre Provision Profit, P/Deposits,P/Premiums, P/Number of branches).

Further valuation tools such asthe “Value Maps” or the “Warranted EquityMethod” will be explained and discussed.

The closing sectionof the book will briefly focus on the valuation of specificfinancial companies/vehicles such as closed-end funds, privateequity funds, leasing companies, etc.

Since the last Financial Stability Assessment Program (FSAP), the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) has kept an active pace in implementing reforms to enhance the resilience of the Australian financial system.

APRA has implemented key elements of the international regulatory reform agenda, at times going beyond the agreed minimum standards to provide additional resilience.

APRA has focused on strengthening the capital framework, implementing Basel III liquidity standards, reinforcing sound mortgage lending standards, improving governance and accountability, and strengthening crisis management and preparedness.

Since some of these reforms have not been fully completed, they remain on APRA’s priority agenda.

Other broad policy reforms have been also enacted, including: a cross-industry risk management standard, a governance and risk management framework for conglomerates, and a phased approach to licensing.

In addition to these policy developments, APRA has also taken steps to align its resources to evolving market needs.

It has restructured its specialist risk and supervision teams to develop a new risk and data analytics function, bringing together specialists in statistics, industry analysis, and risk, to best harness this collective expertise.

In accordance with its risk-based approach, APRA has also focused its supervisory activities more on reviewing banks’ practices and underwriting standards in the area of residential mortgages and commercial real estate lending, in addition to other risk areas.
