Description
The principal aim of this course is to provide students with a solid grounding in the subject of life insurance and life annuity (including pension) contracts. This subject arises through a fusion of compound interest theory with probability theory and provides the mathematical framework necessary for analysing such contracts. Having developed this framework, we can address issues such as how to determine the premium that should be charged for a certain life insurance contract.
