Premium anomaly detection in Life Insurance

While pricing and underwriting are core to the insurance industry, it is also critical for insurance companies to keep healthy portfolios in their books for operational risk control and profitability. In this session, we will talk about and compare several statistical and machine learning methodologies that help automatically identify abnormal premium received from clients on a large scale. Such ideas can also be generalized to a broader context, for example, claims.
