The Society of Actuaries and PolySystems are co-sponsoring their annual Reserves Seminars this June. The seminars offer a comprehensive and hands on look at on the latest U.S. reserving principles for VM-20, traditional life, universal life and deferred annuity products.
All actuaries learn about reserving principles while in school or studying for exams. However, applying reserving principles as part of a company’s financial reporting process requires additional education that cannot be provided by a book.
The Reserves Seminars have been specifically designed by PolySystems to demonstrate how to apply the fundamental principles of reserving to the practical, on-the-job demands of statutory, GAAP, and tax financial reporting.
Registration is open to all. The concentrated syllabus and classroom style atmosphere of each seminar provides an environment in which new students and senior management alike will expand their knowledge and learn from actuaries with broad and deep experience in valuation processes.

Join us at the 2018 Traditional Life Reserves Seminar for a comprehensive, introductory-level session on U.S. reserving principles for traditional life products.
Traditional life insurance continues to be a significant contributor to life insurance industry earnings. Learn about traditional life product design, the implications of several enhancements made to traditional products, including low-cost term insurance and ROP benefits and ways to minimize statutory reserve strain.
The presentation begins with a review of the basic product design as a building block for reserving concepts. The presenters will walk through the essential concepts and build on the basics while explaining the features of today’s products and their impact on the reserve calculations. All topics, including PBR Net Premium Reserve, are illustrated with comprehensive worksheet examples that are made available to all participants.
Course materials will be distributed via email the week before the class. Class participants are encouraged to bring laptops or tablets to dive into the spreadsheet examples along with the presenters.
