Papers Presented at Annual Meeting

ARIA’s Annual Meeting attracts submissions from academicians, PhD students, and other researchers across the field of insurance and risk management.

The vitality of the insurance industry is sparked by the advancement of the study of insurance in a noncommercial, scientific setting. ARIA provides opportunities for research sharing and meaningful dialogue through our Annual Meeting, journals, and events. Additionally, we work with universities and organizations in the industry to connect our members to grant and research opportunities.

Risk Theory Society

The Risk Theory Society (RTS) is a self-administered organization within ARIA. The purpose of RTS is to foster research into topics in risk theory and risk management. The Society’s membership is a diverse group of economists, financial economists, and actuaries who undertake theoretical and applied research in the areas of insurance economics, financial economics related to insurance markets, actuarial science, and more generally in the economic analysis of risk and uncertainty.
