DISSERTATION:“Theories and Application Studies on Purchasing Power Parity Measurement”.

Advisor: Professor Ren Ruoen

This work systematically makes theoretical and applied studies in the aspect of PPP measurement. This work presents a discussion of the methods on output PPP measurement in two aspects of bilateral and multilateral comparison, and respectively reports China-Germany, China-USA and China-Japan comparison for the benchmark year 1995 by ICOP approach, and then analyses Chinese manufacturing performance from a multilateral perspective in 1980-2006. And again, input PPPs are constructed, and empirical results derived from the application of the procedures to input data between China and Japan for the 1995 benchmark year are presented. And this work derives the model comparing TFP level across countries by using capital, labor, energy and mediate inputs PPP and output PPP index, and reports the relative TFP level between China and Japan for the 1995 benchmark year. Most of the dissertation has been published as journal articles (see publication list).

Research Interests:

My current research interests are listed as follows. First, I am working on productivity in China, such as international comparison about TFP level between China and Japan, the effect of energy, information & communication technology on China’s non-manufacturing productivity performance, the influence of government policy and institutions in China on the productivity and its growth. Second, I am willing to make research on asset liability management in insurance company, such as liability pricing problem covering option, insolvency ability problem. Third, I am interested in the measurement of fictitious economy in China. Fourth, I am working at studying some financial problem by the function data method.

Main Academic Research Experience

1. 2010-2012, Project Director: Theoretical and Application Research on Pricing Model of life insurance contracts Embedded Time-Dependent Volatilities Multi-Stage Compound Option, supported by NSFC (National Natural Science Foundation of China), NSFC NO: 70901003.

Responsibilities: establishing project team, designing the whole research framework and research methods, supervising the process of the project and publishing the papers.

Abstract of the Project: Life insurance contracts typically contain various types of implicit options. These implicit options can be very valuable and can thus represent a significant risk to the insurance companies issuing these contracts in case of insufficient risk management. Therefore, proper pricing and risk assessment of time-dependent volatilities multi-stage compound options in life insurance contracts has gained substantial attention in recent years.

This research first sets up time-dependent volatilities multi-stage compound option pricing model in participating life insurance products. Further Considering life insurance's pricing characteristics such as mortility, expense, installment premium etc. and time-dependent volatilities multi-underlying asset pricing model, the research will bulid considering these factors time-dependent volatilities multi-stage compound option pricing model.This research presents the pricing governing partial differential equation, proposes the boundary conditions and termial conditions, and gets the numerical solution by Finite Differential Methods. For universal life insurance, the similar model will be set up. Finally, based on the two models, this research presents how asset structures and asset volatilities affect solvency and reserves and numerical simulation taking China Life Company for example.

Our research will extend complex life insurance product's pricing model to provide reasonable price of life insurance embedded compound option and to appraise life insurance company's solvency risk with reason.
