Report On Pricing Using Market Consistent Embedded Value (MCEV)

Research Projects – Life Insurance
The Product Development Section and Committee on Life Insurance Research are pleased to make available a new research report that explains the concept and construction of market-consistent embedded value (MCEV), and explores the methodology by which one might calculate MCEV, or the market-consistent value of new business (MCVNB), in the pricing process. Authored by Novian Junus, David Wang and Zohair Motiwalla of Milliman Inc., the report includes discussions of profit/risk measures and also compares through case studies how some U.S. products would fare under the MCVNB/risk-neutral paradigm, in contrast to the standard real-world pricing approach
