The aim of General Insurance Pricing Principles (SP8) is to instil in successful candidates the ability to apply, in simple pricing analysis situations, the mathematical and economic techniques and the principles of actuarial planning and control needed for the financially-sound operation of general insurers.
It builds on material covered in earlier subjects, particularly Actuarial Statistics 2 (CS2) Financial Engineering and Loss Reserving CM2.
General Insurance Pricing Principles (SP8) core reading is available from the IFoA E-Shop or our tuition provider ActEd (BPP).
From September 2021, an additional 5 minutes has been added to each paper to allow for candidates to download or print, if required, their exam paper.
