Understand Volatile Mortality Trends—Today and Tomorrow

The United States has experienced significant changes to life expectancy for individual groups—both improvements and degradations—based on lifestyle habits, socioeconomic factors, and medical advancements. The granularity and individuality of these improvements cannot be captured by traditional actuarial methods and aggregated data, leading to abrupt mortality recognitions and substantial financial strain.

Do your current risk management practices help you understand the impact of these trends across your portfolio? Are you able to model these impacts at a policy-level basis?

Seamlessly Integrate Short-Term Mortality Shocks

An earthquake, terrorist attack, or pandemic could cause a major financial shock to your portfolio. Considering the impact of these short-term mortality events commonly requires information from disparate data sources and models. AIR’s consulting services enable streamlined concentration management by integrating these scenarios directly into your view of mortality risk.

Account for Uncertainty to Drive Better Risk Management Decisions

Evolving population habits and medical advancements can have financial consequences today and down the line—historical information alone is not a meaningful indicator of future risk.

AIR’s probabilistic mortality projections account for this uncertainty by assimilating several mortality and health data sets, behavioral and medical risk factors, and epidemiological research to provide you with an in-depth view of risk.

AIR’s solutions are used throughout the workflows of life insurers, annuity providers, group life and pension firms, enabling improved portfolio optimization, risk management, and risk transfer.

Armed with actionable portfolio insights, your organization can make informed business decisions based on your specific financial strategies and risk appetite.

Life Expectancy in the U.S.: The Risk of Moving in the Wrong Direction

As science and technology improve, we should expect life expectancy to logically follow suit— so why did life expectancy in the U.S. drop three years in a row, and what does it mean for life insurers, reinsurers, and enterprise risk management?
