The movement toward a principle-based approach to statutory valuation for life insurance has made stochastic modeling more common for a range of applications, including embedded value, enterprise risk management, and economic capital. Actuarial Guideline 43, which took effect at the end of 2009, marked the first application of stochastic modeling in U.S. statutory accounting, and provides some important lessons that will apply to future stochastic reserve or capital calculations under a principle-based approach.
