Scenario modeling

\sɪˈnɛrioʊ\ \moʊˈdeɪlɪŋ\

A risk management technique applied to longevity risk where the outcomes of accessible, descriptive scenarios are modeled to assess their overall impact on future longevity and knock-on effects to pension plan or insurer liabilities.

Scenarios are often a more accessible way of visualizing possible future effects of longevity risk and can also be a useful way to apply a longevity stress test to a pension plan’s or insurers liability funding. Club Vita has developed a number of longevity scenarios ranging from what would happen if we developed a ‘cure’ for cancer through to possible effects of climate change.
