Statistical Analysis

Statisitical studies originally focused on quantifying the costs and benefits to clients relating to specific reinsurance structures and risk retention mechanisms.  From that point, clients have increasingly asked for broader analytics to help determine the performance of portfolios, profitability of prospective programs, and impacts of business decisions.  Additionally, clients have requested Randy’s involvement with Third Party Actuaries to ensure they have a thorough understanding of the client’s reinsurances.

The overriding goal in all statistical work is to provide the client with a product which accurately, efficiently, and understandably measures the financial impact of decisions.

Examples of Statistical/Analytical Projects Include:


Client Project
