Lee-Carter goes risk-neutral: an application to the Italian annuity market
- Publisher: Faculty of Actuarial Science & Insurance, City University London
We consider a class of stochastic intensities of mortality that generalizes the model proposed by Lee and Carter (1992), allowing general diffusions to drive the mortality time-trend. We analyze the stability of such class of intensities under measure changes and show how a risk-neutral version of the generalized Lee-Carter model can be employed for fair valuation purposes. We provide an example of model calibration based on the Italian annuity market.
