Actuarial Science

Actuarial science is an umbrella term for the broad set of scientific tools that are used to analyse and model in an insurance context. In particular probability and statistics play key roles in this field. The last few decades have seen some significant changes to the field, with an increasing adaptation of advanced modelling techniques, in particular related to valuation techniques that originated in the field of mathematical finance. This has redefined some of the core concepts in actuarial science and makes it an even more active area of academic research.
