## Contents

Probability theoretical modelling, random variables in personal insurance, biometric and other calculation bases, present values, equivalence principle.

Life insurance mathematics:

Legal framework for life insurance, premium calculation, actuarial provision, accounting principles for life insurance, profit participation and its use, profit analysis, key figures.

## Qualification Goals

Students will

• become familiar with the basics of actuarial modeling and actuarial control cycles in life insurance,
• independently model simple tasks of a practical and theoretical nature, then lead them to a solution and present it in a realistic manner
• practice mathematical working methods (developing mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training the ability to abstract, reasoning)
• improve their oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussions.
