ICRFS-ELRF™ - Extended Link Ratio Family

ICRFS-ELRF™ is a software package that incorporates standard actuarial methods including Mack, Murphy and much more. Weighted average link ratios are formalised as regression estimators. These are also extended to include an intercept term and a constant accident period trend for each development period.

The resultant benefits include forecast standard errors (instead of just a point value) and the ability to test whether the assumptions made by the model are carried by the data.

We also offer a Trial/Student Version for FREE of this product with limited database capability and no COM facility but otherwise fully featured. Click here for further details.
