I found .25q_60 and .25|.25q_60 to be the same.
.25|.25q_60.25 and .25|.25q_60.5 would not apply since t_q_x = s|t_q_x is where x is an integral age and t on both sides of the equation is the same.

Ok. Got it.
So to clarify, if they had said k=2,3,... instead then either this is Truncated (assume p(0)=0) or Modified (p(0)=some p).
And because k starts at 1, which would make the provided...

Where is Bayesian Estimation in TIA

Which video speaks to Bayesian Estimation in TIA. I see it on the syllabus but cant seem to find a video title that speaks to it. It is not tied to Credibility but the Parametric Models section.

Why is it that borrowing money increase the beta for the stock.

Shouldn’t increased leverage increase the debt beta?

STAM TIA D.1.3 Example (Partial Credibility)

The material says Pc is M (1-Z) + Z(X bar) however the example uses MZ +(1-Z)(X bar)

This is the example with 15,000,000 and 10,000,000

Please clarify

STAM TIA exercise 1 on c.4.8

For the TIA:
In the solution for exercise 1 on c.4.8 - likelihood test.. why is l(3) used when we should have used l(50)?

Should the prob go on to say the log likelihood at 50 is -619
