S.J. Berridge

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis


The forecasting of claims is central to the successful operation of an insurance company. Based on six years of claim and policy data for full cover car insurance from a major New Zealand insurance company, we set premiums for rating categories using a simple credibility method, a modified credibility method, exponential smoothing and linear regression, then compare these predictions with the actual outcomes.
