How to Model Your Cash-Flows Correctly
Organised by the EAA - European Actuarial Academy GmbH in cooperation with the Institute of Actuaries in Belgium.
Dealing with cash-flows is one of the major topics for actuaries in insurance companies. However, working with cash flows needs a certain IT infrastructure. The power of IT keeps on increasing, complex calculations with millions of different paths can be done in a reasonable time nowadays. Complex and massive data and how to get results from this information will become major topics for almost all areas of economy. Especially in the fields of insurance and financial industry, the role of the actuary is key.
This seminar combines two perspectives: A theoretical part will deepen your know-how in (cash-flow) modelling, while a second, very practical part, will deal with IT solutions for insurance companies, including best practices for ensuring the right data are available for your (Solvency II related) calculations.
This seminar has been designed for participants who are interested in Cash-Flow Modeling or work in this area. In-depth knowledge of actuarial modelling is not a pre-requisite, as there will be an introduction to this area.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop computer with Microsoft Excel installed.
