1. Net Cashflow = Inflow  Outflow
2. Theory Viewpoint of Continuously Payable Cashflow = We say this thing when cashflows are paid
very Frequently. Ex= daily or weekly.
We do this because mathematics used to investigate these cashflows is sometimes become easier when we use continuous rather than at regular intervals.
3. Where there is uncertainty about Amount or Timing of Cashflows. An actuary can assign probabilities to both the amount and existence of cashflow.
Main difference between CT1 and CT5 is that we calculate Present value in CT1 because we assume that amount will definitely come, so we won't consider probability.
But in CT5 we calculate Expected Present Value because here probabilities are assigned with corresponding future cashflows too.
4. Zero Coupon Bond: When a Bond is issued at a discount and matures at Par Value. The difference between issue price and redemption price is the interest that an investor earns over the period of time.
This risk is usually neglegible for bonds issued by Government that's why they offer less return.
But when issued by companies having risk greater than that, then these companies offer higher returns on that type of bonds.
5. IndexLinked Security: Let's understand Real terms and Nominal Terms.
Real Terms is when we take into consideration Inflation and Nominal terms is when we won't consider inflation. For Ex = If inflation is 5% and investor got return of 9%. Then approximately Real return = 95 = 4%. and Nominal return is 9%.
So under indexlinked security, cashflows are linked with inflation index that's why they are unknown cashflows for an investor after paying for known cashflow in the beginning by investor.
The main difference between index linked security and fixed interest security is that under Index linked security payments are known in real terms and under Fixed interest security payments are known in nominal terms.
Let's see an Example:
Date

1/1/14

1/1/15

1/1/16

1/1/17

Index

100

105

108

113

Rate of Inflation during 2014 is (105/100)1 = 5%
Rate of Inflation during 2015 is (108/105)1 = 2.86%
Rate of Inflation during 2016 is (113/108)1 = 4.63%.
Note: In reality, inflation index at the time of payment are not related to it due to delays in Calculating the index. It is also possible that investor receives amount of an index from earlier period.
6. Share buyback: It will result in some investors have to sell their shares back to company. The remaining shareholders will subsequently own a greater percentage of company.
7. Interest Only Loan: A loan that is repayable by a series of interest payments followed by a return of initial Loan amount.
8. Repayment Loan (Mortgage): A Loan that is repayable by series of payments that partial repayment of Loan Capital in addition to interest Payments.
Capital Outstanding Proportion in payment made goes on increasing payment after and payment and Interest payment Portion in payment also goes on Decreasing after subsequent payments because the interest will keep on charging on remaining loan amount which is less than what will be the Previous year.
9. Annuity Certain: It provides a series of regular payments in return of Sinngle Premium.

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…
