Beyond actuarial analysis: Towards a systematic way of approaching risk

Thursday 1 December 2022 12:00 - 13:00

Spaces available

Mortality and morbidity risk varies by variables such as age, sex and smoking. In traditional actuarial experience analysis, these variables, and certain combinations thereof can be explored. However, with the wealth of data now available it is becoming increasingly challenging to identify the key drivers of experience and account for the interaction between different variables. A univariate approach often compares apples and pears, for example males are more likely to smoke and have larger policies than females. Likewise, variable interactions are missed unless specifically included. In this talk, we will advocate a systematic and multivariate approach to experience analysis.
