Sahasrabuddhe paper...

What's the purpose of calculating all of the age-ult LDFs in the interior of the triangle?

Separately, he doesn't seem to bother with separating claim count development from severity development the way Siewert does. Does Saha assume we are looking at a report year triangle, or just not bother with claim counts for some other reason (simplifying assumption)?

I've been enjoying a new job since summer and have not taken an exam since 6 in Spring, or knocking out some OC/VEE over summer if you want to count that. No longer being required to take exams and being paid in the top 5% for FCAS with my years experience (while having ACAS) is somewhat demotivating (inb4 humblebrag). Nevertheless I've decided I will do it for the glory and the bragging rights - gotta keep it 100, don't like quitters.

So I just got the CF/RF package and glanced briefly at the Mack overview while a model fit. Material looks like a cakewalk compared to 6. Officially in.

Yep that's where I am.

Benktader is superior to CL since it gives more weight to a priori estimate.

Benktader is superior to BF since it gives more weight to actual historical losses.




I'm going to hate this

i feel like it will be easier than 6C too. the knowledge components are connected to calculations so it sinks in easier, and the calculations make more sense to me than the accounting questions on 6C
