The key themes of "UNISActuarial SCHOOL 2018" will be new perspectives in actuarial risk management.
The business world faces multiple challenges and greater uncertainty in a volatile economic environment. In particular, the aging population and increases in longevity have drawn attention to the management of the longevity risk in governments, pension funds, life insurers and health insurers, according to the guidelines stated by international accounting and solvency authorities.
In light of these considerations, the risks need to be identified and managed under professional guidance, underpinned by a toolbox of real-world models and bespoke solutions. Successful companies rely on actuarial foundations to understand longer risk exposures in order to effectively and efficiently manage those risks.
In this context, this Special Issue focuses on the social sciences applied to the main topics related to the life insurance field, by means a quantitative approach. Therefore, it solicits high-quality papers for a wide range of actuarial topics:
- Insurance products and contractual innovations
- Stochastic modelling of extremal events in insurance and finance
- Aggregation of risk measures
- Longevity risk
- Solvency analysis
- Retirement planning
- Risk management
- Pensions, etc
