Special Issue "Actuarial and Financial Risks in Life Insurance, Pensions and Household Finance"
A special issue of Risks (ISSN 2227-9091).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 March 2017)
The recent regulatory changes, together with the increasing awareness about the variety of sources of uncertainty that affect the assets and liabilities of insurance and pension funds, have generated increasing attention towards the insurance risk management theory and practice. Nonetheless, the ageing process and the reduction in the coverage provided by welfare states have exposed individuals to unprecedented issues regarding their demand for life insurance, health insurance, and pension and in their retirement choices.
Against this background, this Special Issue aims at highlighting high quality papers that either discuss the state of the art or propose advances in the modeling and management of actuarial and financial risks for institutions and households.
We welcome research papers, as well as reviews, related, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Managing Risks in Life Insurance Portfolios and Pension Funds
- Asset—Liability Management
- Financial innovation in insurance products and risk management solutions
- Risk sharing mechanisms
- Stochastic mortality modeling
- Lapse risk
- Investment strategies and the management of financial risks in a low interest rate environment
- The impact of regulation on risk management practices
- The consequences of ageing for individuals, companies, pension funds and states
- Saving for retirement and retirement choices
- Health insurance, long-term-care insurance and retirement
- Demographic risks in funded and unfunded pension schemes
