About The Event

Prime Re Academy is pleased to invite you to attend its workshop in Zurich, Switzerland in June 2018. Focus will be set on the following topic:

Actuarial Engineering

The workshop aims at learning or refreshing some actuarial techniques used in the insurance and in the financial industry and their implementation in Excel® and/or VBA. These relatively simple and quick calculations can be used to test more sophisticated softwares, to build prototypes or only to understand how methods work in practice.

The topics addressed in the workshop will include:

  • Fundamental programing hygiene in Excel and VBA
  • Data smoothing (Whittaker–Henderson, …)
  • Calibrations and model fitting (max likelihood, χˆ2, …)
  • Stochastic simulations (collective models, …)
  • Risk aggregation (copulas, …)
  • Pricing ((G)LM, …)
  • Stochastic reserving (bootstrapping, …)
  • Claims development (neural networks, …)
  • Market risks (cellular automata, …)

The workshop addresses both, the underlying theory and concepts as well as their practical implementations with Excel® templates. In particular, it will enable participants to implement techniques directly on their laptop, which can later be applied promptly in their daily assignments.
