What is Economic Capital?

Economic capital includes all the reserves which can be used for covering all the losses ( unexpected )  in insurance business. In other words, total capital which is required for total risk taken in insurance business. When we talk about the higher risk business, we have to compare our profit with our all risk. For covering all these risk, we need sufficient quantity of capital fund. That capital fund will be economic capital.

Importance of Economic Capital

1. # With Economic capital, we can calculate risk-adjusted return on investment. Its formula is

Risk adjusted return / Economic capital

or

revenue - expenses + return on capital - expected losses / economic capital

Risk means fear of loss of money. We can estimate it with following formula.

Total Risk ( In \$ )

= Credit Risk + Market Risk + Operation Risk + Insurance Risk + Liquidity Risk

(You can take the help of rating agencies, risk consultants for calculating the total amount of risk. )
