The focus of using stochastic financial models in life insurance market has become particularly relevant because of the growing success of GMxB.

Eric Benhamou, CEO of Pricing Partners, comments: “Pricing Partners has a strong tradition of cutting edge quantitative research and sharing its innovative and new concepts with the scientific community. The interaction is largely beneficial as we exchange with other leading experts and strengthen our significant authority as a strong scientific innovator. This is why I am always proud to hear that one of our quants will present his latest work at a world class international scientific conference.”
