401-3936-00LData Analytics for Non-Life Insurance Pricing4 KP2VC. M. Buser, M. V. Wüthrich
KurzbeschreibungWe study statistical methods in supervised learning for non-life insurance pricing such as generalized linear models, generalized additive models, Bayesian models, neural networks, classification and regression trees, random forests, gradient boosting machines and support vector machines.
LernzielThe student is familiar with classical actuarial pricing methods as well as with modern machine learning methods for insurance pricing and prediction.
InhaltWe present the following chapters:
- generalized linear models (GLMs)
- generalized additive models (GAMs)
- neural networks
- credibility theory
- classification and regression trees (CARTs)
- bagging, random forests and boosting

- Mean variance analysis, capital asset pricing model
- Arbitrage pricing theory
- Cash flow theory
- Valuation principles
- Stochastic discounting, deflator techniques
- Interest rate modeling
- Utility theory

401-4920-00LMarket-Consistent Actuarial Valuation
Findet dieses Semester nicht statt.
4 KP2VM. V. Wüthrich
KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to market-consistent actuarial valuation.
Topics: Stochastic discounting, full balance sheet approach, valuation portfolio in life and non-life insurance, technical and financial risks, risk management for insurance companies.
LernzielGoal is to give the basic mathematical tools for describing insurance products within a financial market and economic environment and provide the basics of solvency considerations.
InhaltIn this lecture we give a full balance sheet approach to the task of actuarial valuation of an insurance company. Therefore we introduce a multidimensional valuation portfolio (VaPo) on the liability side of the balance sheet. The basis of this multidimensional VaPo is a set of financial instruments. This approach makes the liability side of the balance sheet directly comparable to its asset side.

The lecture is based on four sections:
1) Stochastic discounting
2) Construction of a multidimensional Valuation Portfolio for life insurance products (with guarantees)
3) Construction of a multidimensional Valuation Portfolio for a run-off portfolio of a non-life insurance company
4) Measuring financial risks in a full balance sheet approach (ALM risks)
