2 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Outline Problem Formulation Scenario Models for Assets and Liabilities Mathematical Programming Models and Results: – Linear Programming Model – Stochastic Programming Model – Chance-Constrained Programming Model – Integrated Chance-Constrained Programming Model Discussion and Future Work

3 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Problem Formulation Pension funds wish to make integrated financial decisions to match and outperform liabilities Last decade experienced low yields and a fall in the equity market Risk-Return approach does not fully take into account regulations (UK case) use of Asset Liability Management Models

4 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Pension Fund Cash Flows Figure 1: Pension Fund Cash Flows Investment: portfolio of fixed income and cash Sponsoring Company

5 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Mathematical Models Different ALM models: – Ex ante decision by Linear Programming (LP) – Ex ante decision by Stochastic Programming (SP) – Ex ante decision by Chance-Constrained Programming All models are multi-objective: (i) minimise deviations (PV01 or NPV) between assets and liabilities and (ii) reduce initial cash required

6 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Asset/Liability under uncertainty Future asset returns and liabilities are random Generated scenarios reflect uncertainty Discount factor (interest rates) for bonds and liabilities is random Pension fund population (affected by mortality) and defined benefit payments (affected by final salaries) are random

7 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Scenario Generation LIBOR scenarios are generated using the Cox, Ingersoll, and Ross Model (1985) Salary curves are a function of productivity (P), merit and inflation (I) rates Inflation rate scenarios are generated using ARIMA models

8 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Linear Programming Model Deterministic with decision variables being: – Amount of bonds sold – Amount of bonds bought – Amount of bonds held – PV01 over and under deviations – Initial cash injected – Amount lent – Amount borrowed Multi-Objective: – Minimise total PV01 deviations between assets and liabilities – Minimise initial injected cash

9 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Linear Programming Model Subject to: – Cash-flow accounting equation – Inventory balance – Cash-flow matching equation – PV01 matching – Holding limits

11 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Stochastic Programming Model Two-stage stochastic programming model with amount of bonds held, sold and bought and the initial cash being first stage decision variables Amount borrowed, lent and deviation of asset and liability present values (, ) are the non-implementable stochastic decision variables Multi-objective: – Minimise total present value deviations between assets and liabilities – Minimise initial cash required

12 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming SP Model Constraints Cash-Flow Accounting Equation: Inventory Balance Equation: Present Value Matching of Assets and Liabilities:

15 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Chance-Constrained Programming Model Introduce a reliability level, where, which is the probability of satisfying a constraint and is the level of meeting the liabilities, i.e. it should be greater than 1 in our case Scenarios are equally weighted, hence The corresponding chance constraints are:

18 Outline Discussion Problem Formulation Scenario Models Stochastic Programming Linear Programming Chance- Constrained Programming Integrated Chance Constraints Introduced by Klein Haneveld [1986] Not only the probability of underfunding is important, but also the amount of underfunding (conceptually close to conditional surplus-at-risk CSaR) is important Where is the shortfall parameter
