13.06.2019: RISK and the Insurance Business in History

Prof. Dr. Alexander Braun organizes the session “Alternative Risk Transfer and Insurance-Linked Securities” and presents the paper “Market-Consistent Valuation of Natural Catastrophe Risk” at the international conference “RISK and the Insurance Business in History” in Seville, Spain. While open to a broad range of risk and insurance research topics, this conference specifically focuses on the historical study of insurance as a private business, which has been complemented in recent years by another key line of research focused on social insurance. In this field, papers on workplace accident insurance, pensions, health insurance and unemployment insurance programs have gained in importance, particularly as current changes in such programs make it useful to understand their historical origins.
