// . //  Property And Casualty // Self-Insured Actuarial Services

What We Do

We have extensive familiarity with workers' compensation, medical professional liability, and other commonly self-insured coverages, including general liability and automobile liability.

Loss Reserve Analyses

We provide estimates of unpaid claim costs to support liabilities reported on the balance sheet. As appropriate, our estimates include a provision for risk and consider the time value of money.

Captive Support

Our independent actuarial team provides captives with actuarial support in loss reserve and opinions, pricing, risk transfer, risk distribution, feasibility support and analytics to substantiate the captive’s actions, thereby allowing the captive to continue to provide value to the parent company.

Pricing and Loss Forecasts

Our actuarial estimates of future claim costs and associated cash flows provide a foundation for the strategic decisions necessary to manage risk.

Alternative risk financing studies

We support clients who are considering alternative risk management approaches –including self-insurance, captive arrangements, trusts, and risk retention groups – with cost-benefit analyses to aid in decision-making.

Retention Level Analyses and Economic Cost of Risk

We help clients determine an optimal balance between risk retention and risk transfer by considering the likelihood of claim outcomes, the cost implications including a capital charge, and the client's risk appetite.
