### Objectives

The principal objective of this course is to provide a solid actuarial understanding of building, selecting and validating statistical models relevant to insurance business and related actuarial applications. This course aims at establishing a useful bridge and deep understanding between various statistical models of insurance contracts and the raw, typically incomplete, insurance portfolio data available to actuaries. Accompanying exercises in R will help to enhance data skills and understanding of complex computational tools utilised in actuarial applicaitons.
