  • Title:  Data Analytics for Actuarial and Financial Modeling
  • Summary: This workshop provides a survey of the use of modern statistical techniques for actuarial and fin ancial applications. There has been an increased interest in the use of data science to deliver predictive models applicable in all areas of insurance and financial security programs: life and health, property and casualty, pensions. Such predictive models are generally used for improved decision making in: (1) delivering consumer products that are financially sound, (2) developing better relationships with consumers to meet their evolving needs, and (3) evaluating sufficient funding for promised bene fits from insurance and pension programs, to name a few. We will conduct this workshop by introducing a little bit of the theory, but we will also simultaneously incorporate practical case studies and how data and models can be analyzed using R.
