Course Description

Understanding the basic principles of life insurance products is essential for your personal financial planning, ranging from taking out a mortgage to designing your retirement plan and seeking financial protection for the risk of dying early. In this course, you'll study the time value of money and you’ll work with human mortality data to derive demographic markers (such as the life expectancy). Combining the basics of cash flow valuation with the calculation of survival and death probabilities in R will allow you to construct insightful tools to design life insurance products. You'll come out of this course understanding the valuation of life contingent claims: life annuities, which provide an income upon survival, and life insurance products, which pay a benefit upon death of the policyholder.
