A consistent technical pricing framework is an integral part of underwriting management and should be developed taking into account the return on capital required by carriers and investors. Risk based pricing is a framework for allocating costs to individual policies based on their own risk profile instead of pricing all policies to an average return on capital.
At the end of this session, delegates will be able to:
- Explain the relationship between pricing, reserving and capital.
- Outline how to price for the cost of capital at portfolio and policy level.
- Describe what an efficient process looks like and why risk based pricing is a fundamental pillar of the process.
- Summarise key pricing metrics for portfolio management derived as a by product of an efficient pricing process.
