The Cost of Motor Insurance

ISBN: 0215556771
Release Date: 2011-03-11

Fraud is one of the main factors driving up the cost of motor insurance. Wider access to justice should not provide a licence to make false personal injury claims under car insurance policies. A dedicated police unit - paid for by the insurance industry - should be established to tackle this escalating problem. The Committee also highlights the merry-go-round of 'referral' payments made to or by insurance and law firms, rescue truck drivers, vehicle repairers, credit hire firms, claims or accident management companies and medical experts in connection with motor insurance claims. it calls on the insurance industry to take steps to introduce much more transparency. The report also urges the Government to do more to bring down the casualty rate amongst young drivers, including by making the driving test more rigorous. In addition, The Committee recommends the Government: set out a clear timetable for new data sharing arrangements between the DVLA and motor insurers; undertake a promotional campaign, aimed at young drivers, To alert them to Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE - the requirement for the keeper of any registered vehicle to have valid motor insurance); review the penalties for uninsured driving one year after CIE has been implemented; fund research to review international experience in restraining the number of personal injury claims relating to motor insurance, with the aim of publishing a discussion paper during 2012 outlining possible options for change.

Die Münchener Rück stieg schon bald nach ihrer Gründung im Jahr 1880 zum Weltmarktführer auf. Johannes Bähr und Christopher Kopper legen nun die erste Geschichte des Unternehmens vor, die von den Anfängen bis in die 1980er Jahre reicht. Bis heute ist Munich Re einer der beiden weltweit führenden Rückversicherer. Gleichwohl ist in der breiten Öffentlichkeit wenig über dieses Unternehmen bekannt. Dieses Buch zeigt, wie sich der Umgang mit Risiken wandelte und wie Versicherer auf Großkatastrophen und technologische Umwälzungen reagierten. Es bietet zugleich eine Geschichte der Globalisierung und verdeutlicht, welche Rückschläge und Hindernisse es in diesem Prozess gab. Eingehend wird auch die Rolle des Unternehmens im Dritten Reich behandelt.

Statistics provides tools and strategies for the analysis of data. While much has been written about the methodology, sometimes without reference to data, little has been said about the data. In this volume we present sets of data obtained from many situations without any direct reference to a particular type of analysis. Our view of the usefulness of bringing together a broad collection of sets of data has been shared by many friends and contributors. Students of statistics need to gain facility with their art by applying their knowledge to many sets of data. Textbook examples tend to be small and selected primarily to illustrate a particular technique, thus failing to demonstrate the questioning, iterative nature of statistical analysis. The situations which gave rise to the more extensive sets of data given in this volume are colourful and interesting, and can be readily understood by laymen, students and research workers with diverse interests. These sets were often chosen for their perverse reluctance to yield under the naive application of standard procedures. They do not have correct solutions. They describe situations where the statisti cian can develop skills and learn the limitations of statistical methods.

Market Integration Through Data Protection

Author: Mario Viola de Azevedo Cunha
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789400760851
Release Date: 2013-02-26
Genre: Law

In the context of the continuous advance of information technologies and biomedicine, and of the creation of economic blocs, this work analyzes the role that data protection plays in the integration of markets. It puts special emphasis on financial and insurance services. Further, it identifies the differences in the data protection systems of EU member states and examines the development of common standards and principles of data protection that could help build a data protection model for Mercosur. Divided into four parts, the book starts out with a discussion of the evolution of the right to privacy, focusing on the last few decades, and taking into account the development of new technologies. The second part discusses the interaction between data protection and specific industries that serve as case studies: insurance, banking and credit reporting. The focus of this part is on generalization and discrimination, adverse selection and the processing of sensitive and genetic data. The third part of the book presents an analysis of the legislation of three EU Member States (France, Italy and UK). Specific elements of analysis that are compared are the concepts of personal and anonymous data, data protection principles, the role of the data protection authorities, the role of the data protection officer, data subjects’ rights, the processing of sensitive data, the processing of genetic data and the experience of the case studies in processing data. The book concludes with the proposal of a model for data protection that could be adopted by Mercosur, taking into account the different levels of data protection that exist in its member states.

Pricing in General Insurance

Author: Pietro Parodi
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781466581487
Release Date: 2014-10-15
Genre: Business & Economics

Based on the syllabus of the actuarial industry course on general insurance pricing — with additional material inspired by the author’s own experience as a practitioner and lecturer — Pricing in General Insurance presents pricing as a formalised process that starts with collecting information about a particular policyholder or risk and ends with a commercially informed rate. The main strength of this approach is that it imposes a reasonably linear narrative on the material and allows the reader to see pricing as a story and go back to the big picture at any time, putting things into context. Written with both the student and the practicing actuary in mind, this pragmatic textbook and professional reference: Complements the standard pricing methods with a description of techniques devised for pricing specific products (e.g., non-proportional reinsurance and property insurance) Discusses methods applied in personal lines when there is a large amount of data and policyholders can be charged depending on many rating factors Addresses related topics such as how to measure uncertainty, incorporate external information, model dependency, and optimize the insurance structure Provides case studies, worked-out examples, exercises inspired by past exam questions, and step-by-step methods for dealing concretely with specific situations Pricing in General Insurance delivers a practical introduction to all aspects of general insurance pricing, covering data preparation, frequency analysis, severity analysis, Monte Carlo simulation for the calculation of aggregate losses, burning cost analysis, and more.
