Net premium valuation
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
It involves calculating a present value for the contractual liabilities of a contract, and deducting the value of future premiums. Both contractual liabilities, and future premiums in this calculation allow only for mortality and interest. The key with a net premium valuation is that the premiums being valued are theoretical measures - they make no reference to the actual premiums being charged by the insurer.
This technique is a well established actuarial valuation method, that became popular because of its simplicity, consistency, and ease of calculation.
With the advent of computers, the more complicated so-called Gross Premium Valuation calculation (which is also more realistic than the Net Premium Valuation) has become much more feasible, and is displacing the archaic Net Premium Valuation further from its historical position of prominence.
