About the Event

Prime Re Academy is pleased to invite you to attend its workshop in Zurich, Switzerland. Focus will be set on the following topic:

Economic Scenario Generators

All insurance and financial risks depend on the future state of the economy. Some just have their cash flows discounted with prospective interest rates, but the performance of many products and structures is intimately interwoven with the behavior of other market variables, which themselves display strong and complex interdependencies.

This workshop addresses both theoretically and with hands-on exercises, the main market risk models relevant to the insurance and finance industries:

  • Interest rates and yield curves
  • Inflation
  • Foreign exchange rates
  • Equity indices
  • Bootstrapping the economy
  • Validation of economic scenarios

It describes both, the underlying theory and concepts as well as their practical implementations with Excel® templates. In particular, it will enable participants to model on their laptops some important economic variables, whose stochastic scenarios they can later implement in their daily practice. Therefore, participants should bring along their own laptops.

Dates and Schedule

The dates and schedule will be announced soon.
