On the Road to ADAS Data

Not too long ago, slowing down a car and bringing it to a stop relied purely on the attention and actions of the driver. Today, over 70% of new cars in the U.K. have Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) as standard and more than 83% have a self-activating system . Globally, in the 5-year period between 2015 and 2020, the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) market doubled in size and is expected to reach nearly 32 billion U.S. dollars by 2023 .

How much income do I need in retirement

When I started work in the late 1980s this was an easy question to answer - you’ll need a pension of around two-thirds of your pay at the point you retire, index-linked, of course. The truth is that the ‘two-thirds of final salary’ rule-of-thumb was probably outdated even then. It hadn’t changed since final salary schemes were established decades before.

Home sweet home

After a hiatus due to the pandemic, sales of equity release products have bounced back strongly to where they were pre-Covid. Sales have been growing steadily year on year since 2015 but are still nowhere near their full potential. Surprisingly, when one considers the amount of wealth that is tied up in equity in the UK, equity release plans are still a relatively niche product.

Designing better risk models for the next pandemic

It will take time and resources to build an infectious disease risk model – re/insurers will have to be more innovative in their pandemic coverage and exposure management. Natural catastrophe risk models have revolutionised the property/casualty re/insurance business over the past 30 years. They have allowed more efficient deployment of capital by providing a rigorous way of estimating potential losses, better quantifying the tail and increasing trust in the probabilities assigned to natural disaster events and the damage and losses they produce.

Order of the day

It may be an odd thing for a pensions specialist to say, but retirement planning is not all about pensions. It’s not just where people save their money that is important, but rather ensuring that they do commit to saving in the first place. Having a diversified portfolio of investments at retirement can also be a distinct advantage for those who can afford it.

After five years of uncertainty, in March 2021 the government confirmed its chosen method for ensuring that guaranteed minimum pensions (GMPs) continue to increase annually in line with price inflation. This decision applies to all public service pensioners with a GMP who reach state pension age after 5 April 2021.

The right call for customers starts with right data

As the UK emerges out of lockdown, insurance providers will not only need to consider the change in mind-set that the experiences of the past year may have created amongst their personal lines and business customers, they also need to prepare for changes to pricing practices. These factors are heightening the demand for reliable and accurate data at speed, at point of quote, renewal and mid-term adjustment in order to make the most informed pricing decisions.

Your Committee members need to be engaged! That may sound obvious, but many people sit on boards for the wrong reasons.

I Like the way you work it no dividends

The last decade or so has thrown down a challenge to a variety of conventional economic theories. One difficulty with economics is that it’s not a model of anything permanent, but ultimately a model of human behaviour. In physics, whether everyone believes something or no-one does has no impact on its truth or falsehood. In economics, if enough- or if the relevant- people believe in a theory and act accordingly, that can make it true.

Mind the gap in womens pensions

The perennial issue of the gender pay gap gets a lot of publicity but the same level of publicity is not given to an issue that is, at least in part, derived from it. A recent report by Profile Pensions showed that there was an even wider gender gap when it comes to UK pensions. Men’s pension pots are significantly higher than women’s – almost 50% bigger in some parts of the UK and averaging 40% across the country. Given women’s greater longevity, this is surely storing up big problems for the future.
