5. rating agencies: want claims paid

6. management: follow their incentives

Problems with EC model

Lacks transparency
Produces one measure of capital adequacy (and capital adequacy has different meanings to different stakeholders)
Arbitrary risk thresholds and significant parameterization risk in the tail
Inflexible time horizon, risk metric, risk tolerances (risks and correlations change over time)
No real external consequences
Not well defined
