Case Study: Rehabilitation of a family takaful operator in Indonesia
The objective of this project was to firstly understand the reasons for the worsening financial position of the Takaful operator and recommend steps to rejuvenate its operations. We started with performing detailed experience analysis of the various assumptions, on an overall basis as well as segmented to the extent possible to understand the underlying reasons for any worsening experience. We then recalculated the actuarial reserves on our revised assumptions and our fine tuned methodology. Using this we then analyzed the solvency position of the company on a local Indonesian solvency basis as well as on an economic capital basis. We also performed profitability testing of the various subsegments of the business on an as is basis as well as required adjustments in order to achieve profitability. We also reviewed the potential of each segment of business including the level of competition and any particular strengths the operator has relative to other Takaful operators. Based on this we provided recommendations by subsegment of business. Finally we provided an appraisal valuation on an as is basis as well as potential value should our recommendations be implemented.
