Pricing and Analysis of an Insurance Contract

Jean-Frederic Breton, MathWorks

Learn how to get started prototyping a model for a life insurance contract. In this session, you will learn about using MATLAB tools and built-in functions to quickly see the impact of different assumptions on price, returns, and risk at the product development and enterprise risk management level.

Highlights include:

  • Stochastic differential equations
  • Plotting and optimization routines
  • Replicating portfolio methodology
