Life insurance products are often characterized by embedded options and guarantees. The value of these options and guarantees depends heavily on the prevailing economic conditions.
Examples are the interest rate in case of profit-sharing options or the return on investments in case of Unit-Linked products with a return guarantee. The value of embedded options and guarantees is an integral part of the market value of insurance liabilities. A correct and consistent valuation is therefore essential. Not only from the perspective of good risk management, but also for internal and supervisory reporting.
