The lectures will be given in English.

Venue: Åbo Akademi, Department of Mathematics, Fänriksgatan 3 B, 20500 Turku

The course will start on Friday, February 29, at 4.30 p.m.

The emphasis of the course will be on the modeling and estimation of an Insurance Company's solvency. Different types of risk and their effect on the Company's solvency will be discussed. We recommend the course for all those interested in the Insurance World and the changes in modeling, taxation and rules which arise because of the new Solvency System. The course should be of great use for those who aim for the SHV/SGF Actuarial Exam.
