Mono-line Catastrophe Carrier

Challenge: A leading development bank approached NMG to develop a business plan for a mono-line catastrophe insurance carrier under a risk sensitive capital structure focusing on earthquake risks. Our actuarial team was chosen as the preferred partner based on the relevance of its capability set, but also importantly our focus and in-depth understanding of the practices and expectations in developing markets.

Approach: A joint team developed a comprehensive business model that took input from catastrophe modelling results and market studies to generate a five-year forecast model for an investment grade business entity.

Results: This model also supported the discussions of the international working group with the wider insurance industry and assisted the client in understanding the key drivers of the business and extent of exposure.

Loss Portfolio Transfer

Challenge: A leading Malaysian insurance company engaged NMG to explore alternative methods of Capital relief under the Malaysian RBC framework.

Approach: The team undertook a feasibility study for a Loss Portfolio Transfer (a specialist reinsurance contract) and presented the company with a report on the expected premium and improvement in Capital Adequacy Ratio under the arrangement.

Results: NMG was subsequently engaged to execute the arrangement and acted as advisers to the company which resulted in the successful placement of the reinsurance contract with a reinsurer and significant Capital Adequacy Ratio improvement for the client. The transaction was the first of its kind in Malaysia.

Risk Based Capital advisory services

Challenge: NMG was approached by a number of Sri Lankan insurers to help them understand the implications of the new RBC framework being proposed by the regulator.

Approach: This involved the development of an ‘indicative capital adequacy ratio’ model that was released to the market to anticipate the solvency position of a company during the voluntary parallel-run phase of the RBC framework implementation.

Results: This resulted in an overall improvement in the level of technical awareness within the industry and facilitated more meaningful discussions with the regulator.
