Principle-based approach (PBA) project
The Academy has been instrumental in the ambitious effort to modernize the framework for determining life insurers' statutory required capital and reserves in the United States.
The Principle-based Approach (PBA) to reserves and capital uses risk analysis and risk management techniques to capture underlying life insurance and annuity risks more accurately than the current rule-based, one-size-fits-all approach.
