Default ERM EOM Task 6

Figured I would open a thread for this as there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of discussion going on related to the new ERM EOM exercise.

Does anyone have any guidance as to how to complete the first 2 questions: calculating aggregate economic capital using both risk measures (CTE and VAR) + how to calculate the benefits of diversification?

It looks like the Milliman document from the module readings in section 8 has some helpful material in Section 8 'Illustrative Examples' but its not exactly an easy to follow guide.

Appreciate any thoughts anyone may have.

Thanks.

Nevermind - still learning first grade concepts like reading the question fully first.
For anyone that may have had the same problem as me, the question tells you the exact formula to use to calculate aggregate economic capital (its that square root term at the bottom of the page under T6.4).

FYI - Google this SOA paper for help with 6.5:
"Mortality Catastrophe Bonds as a Risk Mitigation Tool"

Hi there,

I know it's a long shot, but I still wanna ask if you have any advice on 6.3 which asks for our opinion on any deficit on this correlation matrix approach.
I can only think of one idea which can be solved by Copula method...and then I am out =.=

any comment is appreciated!!!

I'm stuck on 6.3. Is the question asking for two issues with using a correlation matrix? I can only think of one - not accounting for tail dependence. What am i missing?

Check the module where it discusses copulas and why they are used vs. standard correlational coefficients

Yes, but that's all related to the tail dependence - the reason we use copulas. I'm looking for a second issue. Anyways, I put something down.

I'm really struggling with this one task, anyway someone would be so kind and PM me. I can't wrap my head around how to complete that task 6 worksheet. Not looking for someone to hand me answers - but some guidance.

I'm will to brainstorm with anyone else on this paper and share my thoughts if they have issues with others task.

How do I calculate the Diversification Benefit? Is it the total minus Aggregate EC?
