Risk Analysis

Risk Analysis, Calculation of Net Insurance Premium with Stochastic Process

Quantitative Analysis

If costs of historical damage data exist, expected loss in the stochastic process is calculated. This figure corresponds to the net insurance premium that the insurer should receive. With the value at risk account, the net insurance premium is calculated. With this calculated figure, the amount of premium can be bargained.

1

If any historical costs do not exist, we will also calculate the expected damage costs that will occur as a result of the incidents (fire, flood, earthquake, storm, terrorist attack, etc.) taking into account the current situation of the facility in the stochastic process.

Risks / defects in the facility and the incidents that may be caused by them and actions to be taken and recommendations are included. The qualitative risk category of the facility is determined (Such as low risk, medium risk, high risk).
