Modeling Cash Flows Under IFRS17: TÜRK Case

Jubeh, Rinad
By the introduction of IFRS17, vital changes in measurements of insurance contracts are expected. This requires to assess the liabilities of insurance companies by two kinds. These are (i) fulfilment cash flows and (ii) contractual service margin, in which policyholder cash flows are the nucleus of both. Hence, this thesis consists of two main parts. Firstly, we use panel data analysis to analyze policyholder cash flows in respect to Türk returns, insurer’s cash outflows and changes in cash. Secondly, we consider a top-down modeling technique for the Türk insurance sector. The latter uses machine learning to model, simulate, and forecast future policyholder cash flows and compares the usage of IFRS17 with previous standards. We conclude that under IFRS17 insurers should expect their liabilities to be higher, which would change their capital structure; influencing their performance and position. This change in the liabilities of insurance companies will enhance the transparency, quality and trustfulness of the financial statements. Correspondingly, it will decrease the future variability and create homogeneity within insurance financial statements, which is the core aim of IASB in establishing IFRS17.

This paper presents a model, which can closely predict the future mortality rates whose efficiency is performed through the comparisons with respect to Lee-Carter and mortality trend models. This general model estimates the logit function of death rate in terms of general tendency of the mortality evolution independent of age, the mortality steepness, additional effects of childhood, youth and old age. Generalized linear model (GLM) is used to estimate the parameters. Moreover, the weighted least square (WL...
Risk Classification with Artificial Neural Networks Models in Motor Third Party Liability
Yıldırak, Şahap Kasırga; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Gür, İsmail (null; 2019-06-29)
One of the most fundamental requirements in todays insurance sector is the determination of fair premium for the insured. In order for this purpose to be fulfilled, the correct risk classification is required for each insured in the portfolio. By the realization of correct risk classification, the insured can continue to be provided insurance services with more suitable pricing, while the insurance companies will have the opportunity to provide the correct person with the correct insurance and carry out fin...
Assessment of longevity risk: credibility approach
Kestel, Ayşe Sevtap; Yıldırım Külekci, Bükre (2021-05-01)
To correctly measure the effect of mortality rates on the stability of insurance and pension provider's financial risk, longevity risk should be considered. This paper aims to investigate the future mortality and longevity risk with different age structures for different countries. Lee–Carter mortality model is used on the historical census data to forecast future mortality rates. Turkey, Germany, and Japan are chosen concerning their expected life and population distributions. Then, the longevity risk on a...
Modeling of an insurance system and its large deviations analysis
Sezer, Ali Devin (2010-12-01)
We model an insurance system consisting of one insurance company and one reinsurance company as a stochastic process in R(2). The claim sizes {X(i)} are an iid sequence with light tails. The interarrival times {tau(i)} between claims are also iid and exponentially distributed. There is a fixed premium rate cl that the customers pay; c < c(1) of this rate goes to the reinsurance company. If a claim size is greater than R the reinsurance company pays for the claim. We study the bankruptcy of this system befor...
Optimal premium allocation under stop-loss insurance using exposure curves
Mert, Özenç Murat; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe (2021-11-01)
Determining the retention level in the stop-loss insurance risk premium for both insurer and reinsurer is an important factor in pricing. This paper aims to set optimal reinsurance with respect to the joint behavior of the insurer and the reinsurer under stop-loss contracts. The dependence between the costs of insurer and reinsurer is expressed as a function of retention (d) and maximum-cap (m) levels. Based on the maximum degree of correlation, the optimal levels for d and m are derived under certain claim...
