Hello to everyone, I have the following question regarding the CSM under VFA.

Suppose you have a UL policy with the difference between inflows and outflows be negative (let’s say -100), i.e the policy is loss-making.

Moreover suppose that the Risk Adjustment, although it exists, is immaterial and held to 0, for simplicity.

Therefore the fulfilment cash flow (FCF) is -100+0=-100.

The CSM at initial recognition is max(-FCF,0)=100. Therefore, I recognize a positive unearned profit at inception although the policy is loss making.

What am I missing here? Is my thinking right?

Thank you all for your time
