Particularly in cases where liabilities are being run off to extinction, an equally valid approach is to stipulate an amount of closing capital required, say zero, and use the model to determine the distribution of opening capital. A possible method would involve the following steps: (1) Determine an manner. amount of opening capital (2) Perform the simulation process. (3) If the closing capital is arbitrarily close to zero, record the amount of opening capital. If not, return to Step 1. (4) Repeat steps (1) (3) until a specified number of simulation results have been recorded.

It is characteristic of the method which we advocate that the underlying variables are in fact probabilistic. It is for this reason that we suggest that the most appropriate form for reporting the results is that of probability statements. Because such statements represent a departure from the norm, managers accustomed to conventional financial reports will find them difficult to interpret. There is need for research, therefore, into ways of presenting such probabilistic information in a way which is meaningful to the layman.

A further technique which uses cash flow is profit testing. Whilst this method takes into account expected cash flow, it ignores variation in asset values. Turning now to pension business, we find that the classical actuarial approach to immunisation is not employed here. This is due to the fact that the liabilities with which we are concerned are necessarily stretching far into the future and are, at present, not guaranteed. A member joining a pension scheme may not retire for another 40 years and could be drawing benefits from the fund for a further 40 years.
