Fagseminar skadeforsikring - Pricing, modernization, automation and machine learning

torsdag 11.05.2023 09:00-16:15

Fagkomité Skade i Den Norske Aktuarforening (DNA) inviterer til seminar om Pricing, modernization, automation and machine learning

Tema for seminaret er prising, og ulike aspekter ved prisingen av forsikringsrisiko. Erlend Willand-Evensen og Are Flataker Viken vil snakke om modernisering av prisingsprosessen og deling av data mellom selskaper. Daniel Faller vil gi en innføring i geografisk prising og diskutere Modifiable Area Unit Problem og spatial smoothing. Vi får også besøk fra Sveits, og Dr Franck Cuypers vil gi en innføring i GLM og Neural Networks før han vil vise hvordan modellering og optimalisering av prising kan gjøres i excel (hvor alle kan deltagerne kan gjennomføre de samme beregningene på egne PCer). Vi får også besøk fra Universiteter i Stockholm med Mathias Lindholm, som vil fortelle om utfordringer med å unngå indirekte diskriminering ved bruk av komplekse modeller.

Pricing and proxy discrimination

As data collection and computing power have become cheap, powerful data-driven statistical machine learning methods for prediction have received interest in many application areas, not least in insurance. Common to many of these methods is that they tend to be difficult to interpret; "black box" methods. As a result, questions about implicit, "proxy", discrimination and how this can be avoided have been raised. However, this is a problem regardless of the prediction method used. In this presentation, I will discuss different aspects of this relating to so-called discrimination-free insurance pricing, algorithmic fairness and causality.
Presentasjonen vil bli holdt på engelsk.

Geographical Rating Factors

In this presentation, we delve into the importance of risk classification in insurance and explore the role of geographical factors in determining the frequency and severity of potential risks. We will establish a common language to discuss geographical insurance risk and examine how location may explain variations not accounted for by individual policyholder attributes. By reviewing relevant papers on premium rating with geographic information and discussing the Modifiable Areal Unit Problem (MAUP), we will emphasize the challenges of drawing inferences from aggregated data. Finally, we will share insights from FCG's research on portfolio-tailored rating regions, highlighting the significance of spatial smoothing and addressing the challenges posed by data-sparse portfolios.

Simplifying and understanding machine learning

 In this hands-on seminar, after an introduction to the basics of Linear Models, Generalized Linear Models and Neural Networks, we will implement their algorithms in Excel and apply them to the pricing of a simple accident insurance product. Based on the obtained rates, we will then explore how different insurers can optimize their profitability and market share depending on the quality of their pricing engine. I will distribute the Excel template beforehand, so feel free to bring your laptop and do the calculations with me while I demonstrate.

Presentasjonen vil bli holdt på engelsk.

Modernization of insurance pricing - a managers perspective

The world of insurance pricing has been changing rapidly over the past years. Possibilities – and challenges – seem endless. How can an old incumbent ensure a future-proof pricing operation, and at the same time stay deliver a stable P&L.

Erlend Willand-Evensen, Gjensidige

15:05 – 15:15



Pricing department collaboration and data sharing between companies

We explore how pricing departments in insurance companies, both big and small, can learn from each other. We also ask the question of how Analytika has pulled off having a team of pricing actuaries working as consultants, considering pricing actuaries general allergy to consultancy babble and circumlocution. Lastly, we talk about the data sharing company Aeda, and how some Norwegian insurance companies boost their analytical insight by sharing data with each other.

Are F. Viken snakket om hvordan forsikringsselskaper kan lære av hverandre og hva de kan fokusere mer på for å få mer effektive og bedre prisingsavdelinger. De beste selskapene jobber prosjektbasert for å komme til høyere og mer stabile prestasjonsnivå, og Are snakket om hvordan Analytika samarbeider med selskapene rundt dette. Til sist ble aktuarforeningen fortalt om hvordan Aeda hjelper forsikringsselskaper å dele data med hverandre på en rettferdig måte
