Summary: Financial management requires a systematic approach for generating scenarios of future capital markets. Today’s global environment demands that the scenarios link the economies of individual countries within a common framework. We describe a global scenario system, developed by Towers Perrin, based on a cascading set of stochastic differential equations. The system applies to financial systems for pension plans and insurance companies throughout the world. A case study illustrates the process.
