  2. 2. Stochastic claims reserving in non-life insurance : Bootstrap and smoothing models

    Author : Susanna Björkwall; Ola Hössjer; Esbjörn Ohlsson; Peter England; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bootstrap; Chain-ladder; Generalized linear model; Separation method; Smoothing; Stochastic claims reserving; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : In practice there is a long tradition of actuaries calculating reserve estimates according to deterministic methods without explicit reference to a stochastic model. For instance, the chain-ladder was originally a deterministic reserving method. READ MORE

  3. 3. Micro-level claims reserving in non-life insurance

    Author : Felix Wahl; Mathias Lindholm; Filip Lindskog; Katrien Antonio; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : Actuarial reserving deals with the problem of predicting outstanding claims payments on policies issued up to today to find an appropriate amount of capital, the claims reserve or technical provisions, to set aside in order to be able to meet obligations to policyholders.
