Your Service Professional
Marios Schizas is our Life Insurance professional and in charge of this service offering at Lux. He would be delighted to hear from you.
The Life team of Lux has extensive experience in the following services:
Lux is the appointed Actuary to a number of leading Insurance Companies, with services including the review of statutory figures prepared by the internal actuarial department and/or appointed actuaries. We currently have Appointed/Registered Actuaries roles in a range of jurisdictions in Europe and the Gulf including KSA, Dubai, Jordan, Cyprus, Malta and Bulgaria
Our Reinsurance Assessment services includes providing our opinion, with supporting evidence on various reinsurance arrangements that the client is considering implementing or has implemented. We review the reinsurance programs in detail, assessing the adequacy of cover by reinsurers and considering the reinsurers strength by running a number of predefined metrics to derive the optimal reinsurance strategy.
Our Asset-Liability Management Studies include identifying all material risks arising from the Client’s assets and liabilities and their interaction. We then assess the underlying causes of each risk, the relationships between risks and external factors such as the financial environment and macroeconomic factors and the Client’s solvency position and risk tolerances. The aim is to derive the optimal investment strategy in terms of risk and capital requirements as well as maximising expected yield.
Product Gap Analysis, Product Design & Profit Testing
We carry out product gap analysis exercises to identify areas of potential improvements by either introducing new features on existing products or new products. Following discussions with Management we design an optimum product structure, fully profit tested. During this procedure we build sophisticated models and, working together with the client’s technical departments, we calibrate these models based on company and market past experience. We then set capital requirements and input the required profit margins, as determined by Management, to goal-seek the charging basis that will generate the required margin.
Embedded Value Calculations
As part of our Embedded Value Calculations service, we build cash-flow projection models that capture the present value of future profits based on all policies currently on the client’s books in order to determine the in-force value of the portfolio. In addition to the in-force value we adjust the net asset value to derive the full Embedded Value and, if required, include new business levels to capture the Appraisal Value of the subject company. This can be done for a number of purposes such as disclosure in the company’s accounts, or for due diligence in M&A activity, or other instances where the basis used in the projections may vary.
Life Board & Management Training
We provide in-depth technical training for Management in a number of areas, such as Decision making processes, by embedding risk based capital approaches. As part of the training program we develop and document key processes including Governance, Underwriting, Sales and Understanding & Developing Key Performance Indicators.
