As for the future of MG-ALFA, Patricia Renzi, MG-ALFA Product Manager, explains that "Our efforts over the past several years have been focused on creating an efficient and complete platform to support the stochastic and nested stochastic calculations required under the emerging requirements such as PBA, IFRS, Solvency 2 and MCEV. With that now fully in place, we are focusing our development efforts on tools to facilitate analysis, audit, and reporting for these stochastic and nested stochastic projections, as well as the migration of our user interface and data model to the .Net platform. We are also adding options to integrate MG-ALFA as the stochastic valuation component within the enterprise IT infrastructure."
