Claim Amounts - Other Deterministic Models

  • Greg Taylor
Part of the Huebner International Series on Risk, Insurance and Economic Security book series (HSRI, volume 21)


This chapter will make an attempt to remedy the very empirical nature of the chain ladder and separation methods on which comment has been made in Sections 3.2.4 and 3.3.4. This will be done by examining the mechanics of the claim process in a little greater detail.
