Risk Management in Non-Life Insurance
The goals of this course are based in part on "Core Syllabus for Actuarial Training in Europe" proposed by the "Groupe des Associations Consultatif Actuaires des Pays des Communautés Européennes". It is part of the goals of the discipline to study provisioning methods, emphasizing the Claims reserves, considering deterministic and stochastic models. Another goal is to understand the fundamentals of charging a priori, using usual methods in the insurance business: Credibility Theory and Generalized Linear Models. It is also intended to convey the traditional models for pricing a posteriori: Bonus Malus Systems. It also addresses the issue of Branch disease and the impact of Solvency II on risk measures. The student will acquire training in mathematical techniques that are of particular relevance to actuarial work in non-life insurance.

The teacher presents the themes using slides and privileging the exchange of ideas to reach the goal of each lesson. Students perform practical application of the concepts acquired in class throughout the semester. Whenever possible the matter is illustrated with real examples from insurance. Classes take place using Zoom and it will be possible to access content on the internet and solving problems using Excel, R and Mathematica.
The frequency is attributed by the individual presentation.
The absence in a component translates into a classification of 0 values in that component.
Normal Season (continuous evaluation):
AC = 0.2 (TP1 + TP2 + TP3 + TP4 + Apr)
TP2 - Credibility
TP3 - Malus Bonus Systems
TP4 - Ratemaking
Apr- Individual presentation on one of these themes.
Season of Appeal:
Face-to-face examination of the whole subject.
There is a group work for each of the four modules of the UC.
Students must choose the Groups on the topics indicated at the beginning of the course. They are groups of 3 students. The groups must be different in each assignment. If there is no understanding in the constitution of the groups, the groups will be sorted by the Professors.
At the beginning of the course, each student gets to know about which topic they will make their individual presentation. You should prepare 15 to 20 minutes of presentation on the topic, submitting the slides that will also be counted for evaluation. The Presentation is performed via Zoom. If you are not able to have the video camera connected, you must inform the Teacher to schedule a live presentation at FCT.
The Regent reserves the right to take an oral exam in each group assignment.
NOTE DEFENSES AND IMPROVEMENTS
The student who wishes to present the grade improvement, must register for this purpose in the Academic Department. Grade Improvement is performed in the Appeal Period exam.
If the student obtains a final classification greater than or equal to 19, he / she can choose to stay with the final classification of 19 values or take a complementary test to defend his / her grade.
