Approximations for quantiles of life expectancy and annuity values using the parametric improvement rate approach for modelling and projecting mortality

In this paper, we develop accurate approximations for medians of life expectancy and life annuity pure premiums viewed as functions of future mortality trends as predicted by parametric models of the improvement rates in mortality. Numerical illustrations show that the comonotonic approximations perform well in this case, which suggests that they can be used in practice to evaluate the consequences of the uncertainty in future death rates. Prediction intervals based on 5% and 95% quantiles are also considered but appear to be wider compared to simulated ones. This provides the practitioner with a conservative shortcut, thereby avoiding the problem of simulations within simulations in, for instance, Solvency 2 calculations.
