  • PIN A4.9 Size factor component

    • PIN A4.9 Guidance

      The effect of the size factor component is to provide a relatively higher capital requirement in respect of InsurersG with smaller portfolios of Invested AssetsG . The calculation adjusts the aggregate of the default risk component, investment volatility risk component and concentration risk component in respect of Invested AssetsG , by a factor that varies according to the total size of Invested AssetsG .


      Derived from DFSA RM06/2004 (Made 16th September 2004). [VER1/09-04]

    • PIN A4.9.1

      The base figure for the size factor component is determined by aggregating the following components:

      (a) the default risk component determined in accordance with PIN section A4.4, so far only as concerns the Insurer'sG Invested AssetsG ;
      (b) the investment volatility risk component determined in accordance with PIN section A4.5; and
      (c) the concentration risk component determined in accordance with PIN section A4.8, so far only as concerns the Insurer'sG Invested AssetsG .

    • PIN A4.9.2

      An InsurerG must calculate its size factor component by multiplying the base figure determined in accordance with PIN Rule A4.9.1 by the factor derived by applying the following formula, where x represents the total Invested AssetsG expressed in millions of dollars:

      (a) If x ≤ 100, the factor is 1.5.
      (b) If 100 < x ≤ 200, the factor is (150 + 0.5(x-100))/x.
      (c) If 200 < x ≤ 1,200, the factor is (200 - 0.2(x-200))/x.
      (d) If x > 1,200, the factor is zero.
