  1. 1. Optimizing the Cash Reserve in a Portfolio of US Life Insurance Policies

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Produktionsekonomi

    Author : Alva Happe; Wassim Seifeddine; [2022]
    Keywords : portfolio optimization; risk management; monte carlo; value at risk; life settlements; longevity risk; cash reserve; closed-end fund;

    Abstract : Hoarding a too large cash reserve is often unfavourable due to lost investment opportunities. Similarly, an insufficient cash reserve can be detrimental, as one might fail to meet payment obligations. Finding the optimal balance is nothing that is done in the blink of an eye, particularly when the underlying variable is stochastic, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Insurance Fraud Detection using Unsupervised Sequential Anomaly Detection

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Anton Hansson; Hugo Cedervall; [2022]
    Keywords : Insurance Fraud Detection; Anomaly Detection; Long Short-Term Memory Networks LSTM ; Unsupervised Learning; Autoencoder AE ; Variational Autoencoder VAE ; Interpretable Machine Learning; Feature Engineering; Feature Selection; Feature Importance;

    Abstract : Fraud is a common crime within the insurance industry, and insurance companies want to quickly identify fraudulent claimants as they often result in higher premiums for honest customers. Due to the digital transformation where the sheer volume and complexity of available data has grown, manual fraud detection is no longer suitable. READ MORE

  3. 3. Spatial Statistical Modelling of Insurance Claim Frequency

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Daniel Faller; [2022]
    Keywords : Insurance risk; claim frequency; Markov chain Monte Carlo MCMC ; Riemann manifold Metropolis adjusted Langevin algorithm MMALA ; spatial statistics; Gaussian Markov random field GMRF ; preconditioned Crank Nicolson Langevin algorithm pCNL ; Gibbs sampling; Bayesian hierarchical modelling; high dimensional; shrinkage prior; horseshoe prior; regularisation.; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : In this thesis a fully Bayesian hierarchical model that estimates the number of aggregated insurance claims per year for non-life insurances is constructed using Markov chain Monte Carlo based inference with Riemannian Langevin diffusion. Some versions of the model incorporate a spatial effect, viewed as the relative spatial insurance risk that originates from a policyholder's geographical location and where the relative spatial insurance risk is modelled as a continuous spatial field.

  4. 4. Longering som verktyg vid hältutredning av hästar : hur påverkas hälta av att ha det halta benet som innerben eller ytterben?

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry

    Author : Daniel Svedare; [2022]
    Keywords : häst; hälta; hältutredning; ortopedi; longering; objektiv rörelseanalys;

    Abstract : De veterinärer som under sitt yrkesverksamma liv väljer att arbeta med häst kommer med största sannolikhet att komma i kontakt med hästar som är halta. Tidigare undersökningar visar på att dysfunktion av rörelseapparaten och däribland hältor är klart överrepresenterade vad gäller försäkringsärenden bland svenska hästar. READ MORE

  5. 5. An Extreme Value Approach to Modelling Construction Defect Insurance Claims

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Matilda Ekermann; Ida Swartling; [2022]
    Keywords : Extreme value theory; insurance; block-maxima; peaks over threshold; Poisson process; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Predicting future large claims, as well as the total cost, of a specific insurance is essential for insurance companies, for example when setting premium levels or purchasing reinsurance coverage. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate if extreme value theory can be applied to construction defect insurance claims. READ MORE
