Travelers Insurance Co
Accurate reserves for future claims are crucial to the financial success of an insurance company. This project compares the reserving model currently used by Travelers Property & Casualty (retrospective in nature) to a model suggested by Robert Butsic (prospective, allowing for changing inflationary trends). A common mathematical language for the two models is developed, an Excel program to implement them is written, and numerical simulations run to make comparisons.
