报告题目一：Common mortality trend model and mortality prediction
Dr. Chengguo Weng is a professor of actuarial science at the University of Waterloo. His recent research interest covers insurance predictive analytics, portfolio theory, and the interface of stochastic optimization and statistical inference.
摘要：We propose a framework to allow populations at disparate mortality development stages to be contemporaneously considered through a bivariate-population mortality system with an underlying process of common mortality trend (CMT). As one of the main contributions of the paper, the CMT model is used as a base learner in a computationally friendly framework to effectively borrow information from multiple populations for the mortality prediction of a target population through a well-established procedure of model averaging. Empirical studies with the Human Mortality Database (HMD) confirm that the proposed CMT-based prediction framework yields a substantial improvement in prediction performance over a set of benchmark prediction models. Furthermore, these empirical studies reveal that a key parameter introduced in the CMT model can characterize the development stage of one population relative to the other in the CMT model.

摘要：Asian options are designed to avoid manipulate of the underlying asset and smooth the payoff of the option at time of maturity, they are feather as long duration derivative and more sensitive to the movement of interest rates, thus interest rate risk should be taken into account when pricing Asian options. Most research on pricing of Asian options focuses on the geometric-average, due to the intractability of the arithmetic-average of the underlying asset, it is difficult to price the arithmetic Asian option by close formula even under the geometric Brownian motions model with a constant interest rate. In this paper, we employ Vasicek model to describe the fluctuation of interest rate, then we introduce a stratified approximation method using lognormal distribution and gamma distribution to obtain the price of arithmetic Asian option. This method allows to approximate the price of arithmetic Asian option under Vasicek interest rate model efficiently. Furthermore we measure the interest rate risk on arithmetic Asian options by sensitivity of option price to the change of parameters in the interest rate model.

摘要：This talk proposes a new experiment design for nested simulation whose inner replication's inputs are generated from probability distributions parameterized by the outer scenario. Prior to running any simulations, we formulate a bilevel optimization problem to decide not only which outer scenarios to simulate and how many times replicate at each, but also how to pool these replications via the likelihood ratio method such that the total simulation effort is minimized while achieving the same level of estimation error as the standard nested simulation. Asymptotic analyses show that various performance measure estimators computed from our design achieve fast convergence. We also show numerical study results that demonstrate our design reduces simulation effort by orders of magnitudes compared to standard nested simulation and other state-of-art designs.

摘要：This paper investigates a multi-period portfolio optimization problem for a defined contribution pension plan with Telser's safety-first criterion. The plan members aim to maximize the expected terminal wealth subject to a constraint that the probability of the terminal wealth falling below a disaster level is less than a pre-determined number called risk control level. By Tchebycheff inequality, Lagrange multiplier technique, the embedding method and Bellman's principle of optimality, we obtain the conditions under which the optimal strategy exists and derive the closed-form optimal strategy and value function. Special cases show that the obtained results in our paper can be reduced to those in the classical mean-variance model. Finally, numerical analysis is provided to analyze the effects of the risk control level, the disaster level and the contribution proportion on the disasterprobability and the value function. The numerical analysis indicates that the disaster probability in this paper is always less than that in the classical mean-variance model on the premise that the value functions are the same in two models.

摘要：A risk analyst assesses potential financial losses based on multiple sources of information. In particular, the assessment does not only depend on the loss random variable, but also various economic scenarios. Motivated by this observation, we design a unified axiomatic framework for evaluation principles which quantifies jointly a loss random variable and a set of plausible probabilities. We call such an evaluation principle a generalized risk measure. As the most practical choice, the worst-case generalized risk measure is characterized via a few intuitive axioms. We reveal the relationship between a few natural forms of law invariance, under which we further pin down particular forms of the worst-case generalized risk measures. Some connections to decision theory are discussed, and many open questions remain.
报告题目六：Singular Stochastic Control Theories and Differential Games with Markovian Regime Switching
摘要：This paper discusses stochastic optimal control theories and stochastic differential games in a system of singular forward-backward stochastic differential equations (FBSDEs) in the presence of Markovian regime-switching effects. These problems may be partly motivated by a utility maximization problem with a stochastic differential utility, a singular consumption process and changing market regimes. The necessary and sufficient stochastic maximum principles for both the singular control and game problems are derived.Finally, the relationship between the maximum principles and dynamic programming is discussed in the case of Markovian-controlled dynamics.
