Special Issue "Risk, Ruin and Survival: Decision Making in Insurance and Finance"
A special issue of Risks (ISSN 2227-9091).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2019
Techniques of measuring risk and calculating probabilities of ruin or survival have been exciting topics for mathematically-inclined academics. For practicing actuaries and financial engineers, these topics have brought opportunities, but also headaches. With this Special Issue, we cordially invite researchers to share their results that, in one way or another, contribute to the betterment of practice and/or theory of decision making under uncertainty.
