Accounting for Insurance Loss Reserves

Stanford Graduate School of Business

In the insurance industry, reporting loss reserves presents a dilemma: when an insurer incurs a claim it won't have to pay for many years, such as benefit claims tied up in litigation, current accounting standards require that the loss be recorded at "nominal value," the actual dollar amount. However, insurers would prefer reporting it as a discounted "present value" loss, thereby reducing its liability. One Stanford researcher suggests that discounting loss reserves to present value is well worth considering.
