Copenhagen Simulations and Keylane join forces

The partnership between Copenhagen Simulations and Keylane will help life and pension companies to stay ahead of new Solvency II regulations.

Integrated package solution

It is expected that the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority will issue guidelines end of March 2018 on how to quantify the provisions for solvency purposes under “Solvency II compatible methods” in order for Denmark to follow the European standards in the area.

To support the above Keylane has partnered with experts in financial risk management – Copenhagen Simulations – that offer a full Economic Scenario Generator (ESG). This, combined with Keylane’s core competencies in actuarial/ mathematical methods and software solutions, has created the foundation for a partnership that meets the current regulatory challenges through an integrated package solution called the Keylane ALM Projection Model.

The partnership integrates the necessary skills the calculation of stochastic provisions requires. On one hand, deep knowledge is essential about actuarial issues on the other hand, this knowledge must be combined with the latest techniques in the financial mathematical field.

An advanced calculation platform

2017 was the beginning of our ALM journey at Keylane. We welcomed our first customer on Keylane’s proprietary ALM solution, and in cooperation with existing and new customers as well as through a comprehensive prototype process, we have further enhanced the solution. The Keylane ALM solution is now ready to meet the life and pension companies’ future need for an advanced calculation platform in the Danish and European markets.

Stochastic provisions based on a full ALM projection model

By joining forces with Copenhagen Simulations, we have created the basis for a full model for calculation of stochastic provisions. The Keylane ALM Projection Model contains the following three main elements:
1. Cashflows for modelling customer obligations – Keylane Valuation
2. ESG to generate future financial market conditions – CphSim ESG
3. A projection engine – Keylane ALM – that links assets and liabilities with customer-specific business rules, applicable law and industry standards (the Keylane ALM solution is integratable with other ESG solutions and cash flow generators)

Thus, the full ALM projection model embraces both assets and liabilities, including customer-specific projections at all levels – customers’ deposits and assets, policies, contribution groups or the entire company’s balance.
