Development of Utility Function for Life Insurance Buyers in the Indian Market
MetadataShow full item record
Insurance as a financial instrument has been used for a long time. The dramatic increase in competition within the insurance sector (in terms of providers coupled with awareness for the need for insurance) has resulted in more policy options. The insurance seller needs to know the buyer's preference for an insurance product accurately. Based on such multi-criterion decision-making, this paper uses a logarithmic goal programming method to develop a linear utility model. The model is then used to develop a ready reckoner for policies that will aid investors in comparing them across various attributes.
