In Part IV, we consider models that encompass an entire portfolio of insurance contracts. 1 Cash flows As indicated in the previous chapter, a basic application of actuarial mathematics is to model the transfer of money. Insurance companies, banks and other financial institutions engage in transactions that involve accepting sums of money at certain times, and paying out sums of money at other times. To construct a model for describing this situation, we will first fix a time unit. This can be arbitrary, but in most applications it will be taken as some familiar interval of time.

664K. 83. 66 at time 3. We conclude this section by describing a useful technique that we will call the replacement principle. Suppose we are given a cash flow vector and some subset of the entries (0, 1, … , N). Take the value at time k of just those cash flows in the subset and then replace all entries in the subset by a single payment at time k equal to that value. This leaves a vector that is actuarially equivalent to the original. A formal derivation can be given by writing the vector as the sum of two vectors and using linearity.

What is really happening is that the lender is revaluing the reserve, by applying the new discount function to the future repayments. If interest rates decrease, the value of the function v increases. Assuming the normal case where entries in the vector k c are nonpositive as they represent repayments, the negative of these values are nonnegative, and multiplying by the higher values of v and summing will lead to a higher reserve. The penalty represents the excess value of the reserve as calculated by an up-to-date discount function, over the original value.
