This program will provide a solid understanding of annuities, yield rates, amortization, sinking funds, and bonds with real-life applications. On completion of the program, the students would have a sound background of actuarial mathematics and risk theory and be able to analyze real-life problems involving life insurance and annuities along with associated premiums and valuations, and also be able to analyze problems involving individual risk models over a short term and collective risk models over a single and an extended period.
