The winning work of the 12th Ferran Armengol i Tubau Prize gives a global, structured and rigorous vision on new methods of pricing that, on the one hand, take into account the dependency between the risks covered by a same insurance policy with multiple guarantees and, on the other hand, can be employed in the risk management of this type of insurances in the context of Solvency II.
The 12th Ferran Armengol i Tubau Prize recognises the best research in the area of insurances from an economic, legal, financial or social perspective published in the years 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 or unpublished. The aim of the prize is to recognize and promote the research efforts in the area of insurances.
