The IAA is pleased to announce the publication of the paper Climate-Related Scenarios Applied to Insurers and Other Financial Institutions developed by the IAA’s Executive Committee Task Force on Climate Risk.

This paper is the third of a series of papers that will be developed, aimed at creating awareness and promoting actuarial approaches in climate-related risk management and reporting. The first paper Importance of Climate-Related Risks for Actuaries, and the second paper Introduction to Climate-Related Scenarios were released in September 2020 and February 2021 respectively.

This third paper continues the discussion begun in the second paper in the series, by considering as a starting point the process of using scenarios at the level of an individual insurer or other financial institution at the national level. It examines the challenges faced by actuaries in implementing scenario analysis for climate-related risks and outlines a range of possible approaches.

Three simplified case studies are included to illustrate the concepts developed in this paper. These case studies have been chosen to stimulate broad thinking rather than to focus on an approach taken by a specific financial institution or for specific blocks of business. It is hoped this paper can assist actuaries and others to understand the building blocks of climate-related scenarios and how they can be used to inform many critical risk management functions surrounding climate-related risks.
