FASLR - Free Actuarial System for Loss Reserving

Hello - I’ve been working on an open source reserving package called FASLR that is hosted on the CAS GitHub:

It aims to support open source reserving engines, although chainladder is the only one at the moment.

Here are some demo gifs of me doing random things in the program:

Basic interface:

Development factor averaging:

There aren’t very many developers on the CAS GitHub and I don’t know too many reserving actuaries, so I thought I should create a thread here to get some feedback and feature requests from the broader community.

Thanks!

The loss development pane now incorporates the selection of development factors and the calculation of ultimate loss. The user can select the LDF by double-clicking on the desired average and can also manually enter their own selection by typing in values into the selected LDF row.

The interface looks really good. Any progress towards a Windows-supported version? I don’t think it will get much traction using linux

I dunno reserving, but doesn’t that require some horsepower? If so,linux is probably better.

Also, perhaps there’s better opportunity to do a hosted version under linux.

It will be a long time until I can get things packaged into a proper .exe installer since that will require me to select and learn a build system - although the same would actually apply for Linux too. Right now everything is just a collection of Python files and since those are platform-independent you should be able to run the main file and have it work in Windows, although the look and feel will probably not be the same since I haven’t tested it out on that OS yet.

The heatmap feature from chainladder has now been implemented. The user may also now add various link ratio averages underneath the triangle:
