Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från KTH/Matematisk statistik; KTH/Matematisk statistik

Sammanfattning: In general, insurance companies and especially their clients face long and complicated claims processes where payments rarely, and almost reluctantly, are made the same day. A part of this slow moving procedure is the fact that in some cases the insurer has to value the personal property themselves, which can be a tedious process. In conjunction with the insurance company Hedvig, this project address this issue by examining a pricing model for a specific personal property; smartphones - one of the most common occurring claim types in the insurance context. Using multiple linear regression with data provided by PriceRunner, 10 key characteristics out of 91 where found to have significant explanatory power in predicting the market price of a smartphone. The model successfully simulates this market price with an explained variance of 90%. Furthermore this thesis illustrates an intuitive example regarding pricing models for personal property of other sorts, identifying limiting key components to be data availability and product complexity.
