More on a Stochastic Asset Model for Actuarial Use
In this paper the ‘Wilkie investment model’ is discussed, updated and extended. The original model covered price inflation, share dividends, share dividend yields (and hence share prices) and long-term interest rates, and was based on data for the United Kingdom from 1919 to 1982, taken at annual intervals. The additional aspects now covered include: the extension of the data period to 1994 (with omission of the period from 1919 to 1923); the inclusion of models for a wages (earnings) index, short-term interest rates, property rentals and yields (and hence property prices) and yields on index-linked stock; consideration of data for observations more frequently than yearly, in particular monthly data; extension of the U.K. model to certain other countries; introduction of a model for currency exchange rates; extension of certain aspects of the model to a larger number of other countries; and consideration of more elaborate forms of time-series modelling, in particular cointegrated models and ARCH models.
