By breaking the business down into homogenous blocks, the relative riskiness of different parts of the business can be assessed. Further, the impact of different scenarios can be explored. For each additional block of business that is written, there will need to be an increment in the minimum capital required. The model can be used to determine what this amount should Further, it may be, given a stipulated probability of ruin. be used to determine the amount by which the capital used to support a given block of business is likely to grow over a period and this the likely return on capital.

There is need for research, therefore, into ways of presenting such probabilistic information in a way which is meaningful to the layman. An important characteristic of international general insurance activities which we have ignored is that they are carried on in many currencies. This creates many problems for management, for example in the matching of assets and liabilities and the possibilities for hedging. There is an obvious analogy between the concept of matching here and that which we have discussed in the context of investments.
