Forecasting in an extended chain-ladder-type model
Reserving in general insurance is often done using chain-ladder-type methods.� We propose a method aimed at situations where there is a sudden change in the economic environment affecting the policies for all accident years in the reserving triangle.� It is shown that methods for forecasting non-stationary time series are helpful.� We illustrate the method using data published in Barnett and Zehnwirth (2000).� These data illustrate features we also found in data from the general insurer RSA during the recent credit crunch.
