Bionic Turtle’s Week in Risk (ending December 16th)

Welcome to our Week in Risk! We have some great new YouTube videos for you this week. In the first video, David discusses coherent risk measures and why VaR is not coherent. Our second video continues our series on Exotic Options and discusses floating and fixed lookback options. We’ve included some interesting threads from our forum, and other risk articles from around the globe. We hope you have a great week!

  • Innovation In Insurance http://pointsandfigures.com/2018/12/10/innovation-in-insurance/ “I think that risk and the concept of risk is a big place for innovation in the next wave. Big data allows us to quantify it better and more completely and artificial intelligence allows us to do it quickly. The exciting thing in insurance is not necessarily about existing insurance markets. It’s pretty easy to see that artificial intelligence is going to change the way we underwrite policies. I think the exciting thing is tapping into new markets that never really had a way to measure and hedge risk.
