CEAR/MRIC Workshop V: Behavioral Insurance

Posted On December 15, 2014

December 15, 2014 – December 16, 2014

Carl Friedrich von Siemens Stiftung

Behavioral economics and behavioral finance typically incorporate cognitive and social factors in modeling economic decisions. These include decisions made by the buyers and sellers of insurance-related products. The nascent field of behavioral insurance attempts to explain many of the discrepancies between theories and observations within insurance markets.

The workshop is organized in order to further promote and enrich the discipline. It will give researchers the opportunity to present their work and exchange ideas on the topic. It will be hosted by the Munich Risk and Insurance Center (MRIC) at Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Germany, and organized by Andreas Richter and Jörg Schiller. It will take place on December 15th and 16th 2014.

This workshop is held joint with CEAR and MRIC, alternating from year to year between sunny Atlanta and sunny Munich. This is the 5th workshop in this series.
