Department of Applied Finance and Actuarial Studies

1995-1998 Research Papers

This page lists the research papers issued by the Department of Actuarial Studies and Demography from 1995 to 1998 inclusive. Due to restructuring, this department ceased to exist late in 1998. The actuarial staff now form the Department of Actuarial Studies while the demography staff have joined the Department of Business. Hence from 1999 there will be separate series for Department of Applied Finance and Actuarial Studies Research Papers and Department of Marketing and Management Research Papers.


Most of the papers are available for downloading in pdf format.
