Insurance and credit risk

Course

Description

Insurance claim amounts and claim times are usually assumed to be random, hence probability theory is needed to determine key performance measures like the probability that an insurance company gets ruined or the deficit of the company at ruin. In this course, we discuss several models and methods which are relevant for the probabilistic analysis of insurance models. We also discuss some of the emerging models that are used to predict credit risk, which is the risk of facing bankruptcy.It is advised to take either 2WB50 Stochastic simulation (BAM students) or 2DF20 Stochastics and simulation for finance (non BAM students) before taking this course. Also, you need the knowledge of Introductory courses in calculus and probability theory since this course is an advanced level.
