General Insurance:
Broadly, General insurance is divided into 3
Categories i.e.
1.
Personal
Insurance
2.
Liability
Insurance
3.
Property
Insurance
Personal Insurance has 2 major aspects i.e.
1.
Mediclaim
Policies
2.
Personal
Accident Policies
Mediclaim Policies:
Introduced in India in
1981. They offer Health insurance and can be issued as Individual policies or as
a Group Policy.
Health
Insurance:
·
It
is a type of insurance coverage that covers the cost of an insured individual's
medical and surgical expenses. Depending on the type of health insurance
coverage, either the insured pays costs outofpocket and is then reimbursed,
or the insurer makes payments directly to the provider.
·
A
Health Insurance policy reimburses the insured for medical and surgical
expenses arising from illness or injury that leads to hospitalization
Inclusions:
Following
expenses are reimbursed
1.
Nursing
expenses, Anaesthesia and other specialist doctor Fees.
2.
Operation
theatre, Room and Boarding Charges
3.
Treatment
in a Hospital which has to be
·
Registered
·
Has
an Operation theatre
·
Has
atleast 15 Patient Beds (10 for C class Cities)
4.
Requirement
is that Patient should be admitted for atleast 24 hrs but this condition not
applicable in case of – “Dialysis, Chemotherapy, Dental Surgery etc”.
5.
Medical
Expenses 30 days prior to and 60 days after hospitalization are also paid provided
incurred for same ailment for which he is hospitalized.
Exclusions:
Following
Expenses are excluded from the Policy:
1.
War
and Nuclear Perils
2.
Preexisting
Disease, AIDS, Hearing Aids and Spectacles
3.
Certain
ailments are excluded for the first 30 days from the start of policy and some
ailments are excluded for the first year such as Cataract, Hernia, Piles as
they take time to develop.
Notes:
1.
These
Policies can be issued in age group 580 years. However Children can covered
between 3 months and 5 years too if one of the parents have taken a Mediclaim policy.
2.
Principle
of Contribution Shall Apply.
3.
Policy
can be cancelled by 30 days Notice. If cancelled by insurer, refund is made on
Prorate basis. If cancelled by insured, refund is based on Short period basis.
Deductions

Role of Generalised Linear Model in Non Life Pricing  Phase1
We will cover a series of topics relating to how Non Life Pricing is done through GLM.
But first let's see what is GLM
Generalised Linear Model Before Jumping on to what is GLM, let’s see what is Linear models 1.Linear Models:
Let’s take the example of Weight (Y) and Height (X). The aim of linear models is to find the line of best fit through the data points.
Here is your X axis is Height and Y axis is your Weight. Y = B0 + B1x
Line of Best Fit is B0 + B1x where B0 is intercept on Y axis and B1 is the gradient.
Now the question is how that line comes?
Well, line is chosen in such a way to minimize the sum of squared error terms where error terms are distances from data points to straight line, error terms are normally distributed with mean 0 and variance σ2.
2.Multiple Linear Regression:
We can extend our model to allow for other predictive variables. For example, we can decide that Weight can depend on height and calories consumed per day both. So here we cannot find the line of b…

CFM vs UDD vs Balducci
Life Tables: It is a computational tool based on a specific survival model. Our
task is to generate a survival model and our output will be a life table. Life
table is based on Unitary method. lx= Expected no. of lives at age x dx= Expected no. of deaths between exact age x and exact
age x+1 NOTE: We call it expected and not actual because most of the values
will be in decimal too, so how can it be actual.
But there is a limitation of Life Tables: It is defined only for integer ages. If we have to calculate probability of death/survival at any noninteger age we will use 3 assumptions: 1.CFM= Constant Force of Mortality 2.UDD= Uniform Distribution of death 3.Balducci assumption
1.CFM ·It assumes that the force of mortality is constant, i.e. ux+t = ux ·If the force of mortality of a newborn is constant, it means that the expected future lifetime of this life is 1/μ no matter what age he is in. ·Survival Function in this case will decrease exponentially. ·If 0<s<t<1 then tspx+s = tpx/spx …

MWRR vs TWRR which is better and Why ?
We can decide between various projects that which one
is better and which one is not on the basis of different criteria such as: NPV, IRR, DPP But how can we measure the investment performance?
Well, there are basically three measures of investment performance: 1.Money
Weighted rate of return (MWRR) 2.Time
Weighted rate of return (TWRR) 3.Linked
internal rate of return (LIRR)

It is necessary to measure the performance of a fund which can be a pension fund, funds of an insurance company or funds of an asset management company. It is important for those who are responsible for the investment funds for example: trustees in case of pension fund will monitor how fund is performing i.e. they find out the rate of return of the fund and then compare it with performance of other funds. Before looking at different measures, let’s see some definitions: a.)Income generate by fund: it includes interest payments, dividends received fr…
