I am Han Cheol who has graduated from the graduate school of the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science in 2009.
I am currently working as a researcher at Life Care Research Center, Product Customer Office, Samsung Life Insurance. Our laboratory is divided into project groups and risk centers. At the risk rate center, I am mainly responsible for the integrated management of basic statistics for risk rate calculation and the management of the mortality profit and loss. analysis system for each product, collateral, job type, and region. In addition, I am also engaged in actuarial-related tasks such as segmentation of mortality profit and loss and risk ratio development. In other words, our research center's risk rate center is the department that oversees risk rate development, which is an important factor in product development.
I would like to congratulate you on joining our department, and let me briefly introduce the profession of an actuary. Actuarial science is the application of statistics in the financial field. Actuary in the United States is one of the most respected professions in society. Even in Korea, actuary is one of the most respected professions in the insurance industry.
