Risk Premium Project / 2011 Update

Held on Thursday July 12, 2012

Description

This webinar summarizes the results of the 2011 Risk Premium Project (RPP) continual update. The aim of the RPP is to review the actuarial and finance literature on the theory and empirics of risk assessment for property-casualty insurance. 68 papers were added to the RPP database, which now contains 986 references. The RPP webpage has been revised and offers a new "Suggest Items" template that CAS members and other interested parties can use to suggest new papers. The webinar will provide an overview on recent academic research and should also provide a platform to exchange ideas on future research topics.

Intended Audience

CAS Members and Non-Members are welcome to attend. This session may be of particular interest to those actuaries who are interested in getting an update on what is currently going on in actuarial and finance literature, especially on the theory and empirics of risk assessment for property-casualty insurance.
