Optimizing Business Results
Predictive analytics enables actuaries to dig deeper into discovering why things happen, and to use those insights to predict future outcomes. Steve Fredlund, FSA, MAAA, talks about how predictive analytics will soon embed itself in many major industries to optimize business results.
Working with Regulators
Dorothy Andrews, ASA, MAAA, shares her perspective on predictive models and regulations as part of a panel from the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS). She discusses model variables and transparency in working with regulators in the Actuarial Review.
Financing Long-term Care
Read the SOA’s report on ways to finance long-term care (LTC). Tapping into insights from the Long-term Care Think Tank, the report focuses on two specific product concepts:
- LifeStage Protection. An insurance policy that starts as term life insurance during prime income-earning years and then switches to LTC insurance during later years.
- Retirement Plus. A flexible retirement plan like a 401(k) or IRA, but with LTC insurance built into it.
