Summary: Much of actuarial science consists of constructing and analyzing mathematical models that describe how fluids flow into and out of an insurance system. This book examines contemporary topics such as risk theory and economics, credibility and stochastic processes with a focus on the loss process, or the outflow of cash due to the payment of benefits. A modern practical guide to building and using actuarial models. Loss Models: From Data to Decisions is organized ar moreound the principle that actuaries build models in order to analyze risks and make decisions about managing the risks based on conclusions drawn from the analysis. In practice, one begins with data and ends with a business decision. The book flows logically from this principle. It begins with a framework for model building and a description of frequency and severity loss data typically available to actuaries. Parametric models are emphasized throughout. The frequency and severity models are used in building aggregate loss models, in credibility-based pricing models, and in loss analysis over multiple time periods. Designed as both an educational text as well as a professional reference, Loss Models: * Assumes little prior knowledge of insurance systems
* Features many fascinating examples taken from insurance files
* Contains a major instructive case study continued through each chapter
* Covers the classical areas of risk theory and loss distributions
* Gives a practical but rigorous treatment of modern credibility theory
* Uses standard statistical concepts, methods, and notation
* Provides modern computational algorithms for implementing methods
* Includes free companion software available from an FTP site
* Deals with many topics on CAS 4B and SOA 151 and 152 actuarial exams
* Includes many exercises based on past CAS and SOA exams. less
