They lean on their industry experience throughout to connect the theory to real-world practice, such as assessing the performance of business units, evaluating risk transfer options, and optimizing portfolio mix.</p> <p>Readers will discover:</p> <ul> <li>Definitions, classifications, and specifications of risk</li> <li>An in-depth treatment of classical risk measures and premium calculation principles</li> <li>Properties of risk measures and their visualization</li> <li>A logical framework for spectral and coherent risk measures</li> <li>How risk measures for capitalization and pricing are distinct but interact</li> <li>Why the cost of capital, not capital itself, should be allocated</li> <li>The natural allocation method and how it unifies marginal and risk-adjusted probability approaches</li> <li>Applications to reserve risk, reinsurance, asset risk, franchise value, and portfolio optimization</li> </ul> <p>Perfect for actuaries working in the non-life or general insurance and reinsurance sectors, <i>Pricing Insurance Risk: Theory and Practice</i> is also an indispensable resource for banking and finance professionals, as well as risk management professionals seeking insight into measuring the value of their efforts to mitigate, transfer, or bear nonsystematic risk.</p>
