Triple-I Blog | Recent Survey of Financial Institutions’ Rise in Car Loans Shows $30bn Increase in Applications

The increase in public costs led to an increase of $ 30 billion in motor vehicle claims between 2012 and 2021, according to an updated study published by the Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I), in collaboration with the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS). A significant increase in the total analysis period occurred due to the newly added years 2020 and 2021 with data.

The findings of the research paper, Social Inflation and Loss Development–An Update, show that despite some factors, social inflation can cause losses in the last 10 years by 18-20%. The results also show that inflation, as a loss driver, may exceed inflation in the economy as a whole by 2 to 3% per year. The assumptions in this paper assume that exposure in the auto industry grows over time at the same rate as the economy as a whole. The updated research supports the dialogue that Triple-I and industry partners have fostered in recent years to raise awareness of the situation and encourage solutions. Both Triple-I/CAS inflation papers were written by experts James Lynch and David Moore.

Tracking inflation in the auto liability business

Analysts in any industry can rely on financial indicators and develop methods to show the amount of money that is related to the increase in prices caused by the inflation of the economy. According to the definition mentioned as the basis of this paper, the rate of inflation can cause a serious problem for insurance companies as it can include “all the ways in which insurance claims increase beyond the recession, including changes in income. People’s preferences on who is better at taking risks. ” The effects of other possible factors, such as the increase in criminal sentences and additional cases, can be strong and difficult to predict, which makes risk reduction strategies difficult.

However, insurers should aim to reduce premiums, and that effort may include finding a way to explain how inflation starts. Therefore, instead of trying to disrupt the instruments of economic growth, this evolution of the 2022 CAS-Triple I agreement continues to track the evidence of this, verifying the potential losses over time, and finding the relevant indicators. for criminals. Therefore, the study focuses on the size of the claims and evaluates the rate of deterioration over time.

Research raises questions, sheds light on what is happening

As with many industries, the COVID-19 pandemic challenges long-standing strategies and conventional predictions. The number of claims, relative to the economy as a whole, fell sharply in 2020 and remained flat in 2021, although the trend seems to have returned to pre-pandemic levels. However, the dryness seems to have increased significantly.

Enter loss triangles – a popular tool that can compare loss metrics across years and see how losses grow over time. As in last year’s paper, the researchers used this tool to analyze the cost-loss payment methods and the cost of protection and storage (DCC). The analysis shows that although the epidemic has greatly hindered the possibility of filing new cases in the short term, it may have also caused more problems by preventing the timely execution and, therefore, the complete elimination of the remaining crimes.

Although inflation increases losses on commercial auto loans, existing methods of determining where inflation ends and depreciation begins can be reliable. In addition to explaining the shock of the epidemic of foreclosures, the newly added factors affected the economic recovery and were affected by many of the things that came with it – the increased demand, the stability of the production and services, as well as, the economic growth of the economy. Consumer Price Index (CPI) for all urban consumers. In 2021, the CPI rose by an alarming 4.7 percent, the fastest growing rate in this century. These and other economic changes may weaken the power of simulations and simulations. In any case, the calculation of the sudden loss showed that for the first time in ten years, the actual outflow was lower than the expected one in 2020 and 2021, reversing what was done in the previous paper about the reliability of the conventional estimates.

The importance of understanding economic growth

It is important to remember that although insurers are often called upon to help businesses and communities recover from natural disasters or other unforeseen events, inflation is a man-made problem that is already growing in the market. A 2020 study by the American Transportation Research Institute found that, from 2010 to 2018, the growth of criminal judgments grew by 33 percent annually, as inflation grew by 1.7 percent each year during the same period and health care costs increased by 2.9 percent.

When losses grow faster than payments, insurers may use various strategies to stay afloat, including reducing the amount of premiums paid, increasing premiums, or dropping other types of coverage. For policyholders who need to limit their exposure to the auto industry, coverage costs or lack of coverage can threaten their ability to compete or continue to operate, especially for those in unregulated industries.

Unprecedented times call for new ways of gathering and analyzing data. This paper relies on new methods of using old school methods and discusses how the reliability of some metrics can be improved by using other data sources. A a paper by the same researchers included the same information about the medical malpractice section. The main findings of these papers, together with the resulting research on population inflation, can be useful in exploring possible solutions, such as solving long-term cases.
