Last update: RNDr. Jitka Zichová, Dr. (02.06.2022)

The aim of the subject is to describe probabilistic models used in non-life insurance, fundamentals of the collective risk model including elementary ruin theory , to make a survey of technical reserves and selected methods for computing outstanding claims reserves.

Course completion requirements -
Last update: Mgr. Ing. Pavel Kříž, Ph.D. (13.10.2022)

Conditions for the exercise class credit: solved homeworks, written exam (at least 50% of points), oral presentation on a given topic.

The nature of these requirements precludes possibility of additional attempts to obtain the exercise class credit.

The exercise class credit is necessary for the participation in the exam.
