With Solvency II, running insurance companies can turn the focus onto using modeling power for business planning. Join this seminar to find out how MATLAB can assist you in providing on-demand results for all stress tests, what-if, hedging and business planning needs using intelligent proxy models of liabilities. The proxy models can be fitted without having to make any modifications to existing heavy models. Learn how to use MATLAB to automate your workflows, from importing data, modeling and all the way to production, dealing with big data and accelerating the models using parallel processing.

Please note: MathWorks will share the registrants contact details with Model IT.
