/ Generating a decline triangle


A crucial will need for any coverage company is keep track of assert losses about time by exhibiting them in what are known as “loss triangles.” Ordinarily, this is a really manual process seeking that consists of on the lookout at the economical transactions more than the past year and when the claim transpired and updating an Excel spreadsheet. 


By leveraging Magic ETL and using the pivot table card, I have been capable to automate this approach and permit our Finance crew to see updated triangles any time they want. I enhanced it even even further by utilizing Kind Builder, which permits the user to decide on a particular evaluation day in circumstance they really don’t want the most new day, but want to glance at as of a specific historical date. This saves our corporation plenty of hours each thirty day period and also improves accuracy by applying this solution.


To deliver the loss triangles, I leverage the team by tile and the rank and window tiles to create working totals. This enables me to show losses for each year of a declare. I then use the pivot desk card and area the loss 12 months in the row and the transaction year (or months of improvement) in the columns and the amount of money in the price field. This will end result in the details remaining displayed in the condition of a triangle.
