Members of the Joint Risk Management Section, a group venture of the CIA, Society of Actuaries (SOA), and Casualty Actuarial Society, and other actuaries are invited to join this webcast to hear three experts evaluate actuarial practices for modelling credit risk in the life insurance industry. The trio will summarize the development of credit models and describe their application in risk management systems and calculations. They will also discuss contrasts between best practice techniques and regulatory calculations, and summarize the findings of a study undertaken by Kamakura under the auspices of the SOA to determine the state of credit modelling in the insurance industry compared with the broader state of the art.
