As we look forward to living in a world which will be heavily influenced by the impact of Covid, this lecture aims to address questions regarding the social protection and insurance elements of our new world.
Dr Sule Sahin Lecturer in Actuarial and Financial Mathematics, Dr Carmen Boado-Penas Senior Lecturer in Actuarial and Financial Mathematics, Dr Julia Eisenberg Lecturer in Actuarial and Financial Mathematics (currently on leave) will explore their findings by referring to exerts taken from their recently published book: Pandemics: Insurance and Social Protection.
Pandemics: Insurance and Social Protection focuses on expert contributions on actuarial modelling and related topics, from machine learning to legal aspects, and reflects on possible insurance designs during an epidemic/pandemic. Starting by considering the impulse given by COVID-19 to the insurance industry and to actuarial research, the text covers compartment models, mortality changes during a pandemic, risk-sharing in the presence of low probability events, group testing, compositional data analysis for detecting data inconsistencies, behaviouristic aspects in fighting a pandemic, and insurers’ legal problems, amongst others. Concluding with an essay by a practicing actuary on the applicability of the methods proposed, this interdisciplinary book is aimed at actuaries as well as readers with a background in mathematics, economics, statistics, finance, epidemiology, or sociology.
This event is free to attend with the opportunity to ask the panel questions following the main discussion.
