Moultrie, T.M. and Thomas, R.G. (1997) The right to underwrite? An actuarial perspective with a difference. Journal of Actuarial Practice, 5 (1). pp. 125-146. ISSN 1064-6647. (Full text available)
For a very long time, underwriting has formed part of the actuarial canon. With increasing frequency, challenges are being issued against the right of insurance companies to underwrite their applications for new business, arguing that certain aspects of the practice are undesirably discriminatory. This paper explores the role of the actuary in the underwriting process, and the challenges that are being set for the profession (as opposed to the life insurance industry) as a result of this role.
