Unlike traditional valuation methods, viability theory provides tools for eradicating risk by determining the minimum initial capital required to meet the commitments of the investor, regardless of forecasted market developments. This capital can play the role of risk assessment within a framework of asset and liability management (ALM) of a guaranteed fund with the tools of viability theory. Using viability theory, this study offers a practical example of asset and liability insurance management (ALIM) of a radically different philosophy, eradicating risk as a function of any forecasting mechanism providing a prevision of the future risk returns, from chartist to the VIMADES Extrapolator presented in this chapter.
