Balance Sheet Comparison

39
(No Transcript)
40
What is Adequate Amount of Retained Funds?
  • It Depends (See WA State Review Criteria)
  • Aversion to Risk
  • Ability to Assess
  • Large Loss Probability
  • Strategic Goals
  • Changes in SIR, coverage, reserving, actuary
  • Leverage Ratios

41
Funding PolicyBenchmarks
  • Financial Ratio Numbers
  • Net Deposits 4.0 Mil
  • Total Liabilities 11.2 Mil
  • Total Fund 25.7 Mil
  • SIR 5 Mil
  • SIR Fund 19.5
  • Including standards used by WA State and MI
    Municipal Insurance League (MML) - see handout

42
Funding PolicyBenchmarks
  • Yearly Deposit at least 50 CL
  • Goal 70. Current Funding at 50.
  • Total Fund to SIR ratio at least 21
  • Goal 31. Current 51
  • Maintain SIR Fund PLAN SIR
  • Goal 10 Million. Current 19.5 Mil
  • Maintain Risk Margin Fund at 90 CL
  • Current 17.4 Mil. Total Assets 37.6 Mil.

43
Total Fund to SIR
  • Measures Conservatism in Self Funding - maximum
    Fund would decrease from one loss.
  • Pools typically at 51 to 151. A larger SIR
    would merit a ratio of 3.0 to 1.0 (WA State
    Guide). MML benchmark 10 or more, current
    36.81
  • PLAN ratio is 51 (255 Mil)
  • Exceeds Funding Policy Goal of 31 , Min. 21
  • Up from 3.81 last year
  • Raise goal from 31 to current 51 and minimum
    from 21 to 31

44
Yearly Deposit to Total Fund
  • Measures exposure to pricing errors. If PLAN
    underprices loss funding subsequent poor loss
    experience would impact Fund. Also measures
    growth potential supported by Fund
  • A low ratio is desirable - i.e. less than 11
  • New Pool 51 Mature Pool .51 (WA Guide)
  • MML benchmark 1.0 or less, current .791
  • PLAN ratio is .161 (425.7)
  • No benchmark in Funding Policy
  • Keep at .251 or less

45
Loss Reserves to Total Fund
  • Measures the potential impact on solvency of
    under reserved losses. The higher the ratio the
    more critical reserves be accurate.
  • Pools typically at 0.41 to 2.51
  • Low ratio desirable, lt 1.51 (WA), lt 31 (MML
    with current ratio 21)
  • PLAN ratio is .441 (11.225.7)
  • Add benchmark minimum 1.51 or less, goal of
    11 or less.

46
SIR Fund to SIR
  • Unique to PLAN
  • Minimum Ratio 11
  • Goal 10 mil - current 19.5 mil
  • Current Ratio 19.55 3.91
  • Up from 9.65 1.92
  • Raise minimum from 11 to 21 with goal of 31
    (current 3.91)

47
Change in Fund, Reservesor Funding
  • Fund More than 10 reduction merits a study of
    rate or funding levels.
  • 19.3 to 25.7 Mil change 32 Increase
  • Reserves No more than a 25 increase in prior
    years loss reserves
  • 15.8 to 11.2 Mil change 29 Decrease
  • Funding No more than 10 Increase
  • PLAN funding increase 0.6

48
Funding Goal 70 CL
  • Currently at 50 CL
  • Raise to 70 for 2003-04?
  • Would add 660,000 or 16 to Current Funding
    (4,720,000 v. 4,060,000)
  • Options?
  • Increase Funding
  • Leverage Retained Funds?
  • Lower SIR?

49
Suggested Funding Benchmarks
  • Fund to SIR - raise goal from 31 to current 51
    and minimum from 21 to 31
  • SIR Fund to SIR - raise minimum from 11 to 21
    with goal of 31 (current 3.91)
  • Loss Reserves to Fund - add benchmark minimum
    1.51 or less, goal of 11 or less. (current
    .441)
  • Others? Limit Deposit to 10 increase?

50
Evolution of PLAN Funding
  • 1986 - 1990 Growth of Risk Margin Fund
  • 1991 - 1996 Dividends Declared
  • 1997 - 1998 3.4 mil Dividend, SIR Fund Created
    and Net Expense 196,000
  • 1998 - 2001 Increased SIR, Loss Funding, SIR
    Fund, Decreased Dividends
  • 2001- 2003 Decreased SIR, XS Ins., SIR Fund
    Growth no dividend, actuary change.
  • 2003 Beyond SIR Fund Higher? Dividends?
    Leverage? Nirvana?

51
Pool Nirvana
  • Assets Interest gt Deposits Admin
  • No new funds are EVER required
  • Is that a realistic goal?
  • Should it be a goal of the PLAN?
  • Great way to view dividends, interest, and
    funding from a strategic standpoint.
  • Measure of opportunity cost

52
Pool NirvanaIs it Realistic?
  • Other Pools Achieved?
  • Under what conditions?
  • How has the PLAN compared?
  • Could we achieve it now?

59
Pool NirvanaShould It Be a Goal?
  • Other Uses of Funds
  • Dividends
  • Reduce Funding
  • Increase SIR
  • Increase Occurrence Limit
  • New Programs or Coverages
  • Increase Services - esp.. Risk Control

60
Pool NirvanaShould It Be a Goal?
  • How would that change our current goals and
    practices?
  • SIR Fund 10 mil ?
  • SIR 10 mil?
  • Dividends?
  • Funding Credits

61
Pool NirvanaReality
  • Interest Rate and Loss Probabilities make it
    unpredictable
  • Possible By-product of Overall Funding Strategy
  • Is a goal in the sense it reflects pool stability
    and efficiency
  • Good tool in measuring funding options and
    strategic objectives

62
Pool NirvanaReality
  • Dividends used to make deposits more predictable
  • Help ease impact of budget fluctuations
  • Fund more services for members
  • Deposits above or below predictable level (_at_
    payroll increase) should be based on members
    compliance with loss prevention policies and
    preventable losses

63
