On the Russian market of insurance services life insurance is one of the fastest growing segments. Identifying among the clients of the insurance company risk groups composed of individuals more prone to other termination of the contract of life insurance, allows to conduct purposeful work on their retention, which ultimately should lead to reduction of customer churn and, as a consequence, have a positive impact on the financial performance of the insurance company. The solution is achieved through the development of a model that predicts premature termination of life insurance contracts. In this work a comparative analysis of regression models and neural network models the termination of contracts of life insurance.
Russia and Ukraine have recently adopted complex statutes on consumer credit. Ukraine, unlike Russia, declared the aim of the new act, inter alia, harmonization of the legislation with international and EU standards. Prior to enactment, both countries had a fragmentary regulation of few aspects of consumer credit in general consumer protection laws. I consider peculiarities of the elimination of the contract disproportion of debtor and creditor rights in contracts on consumer credit under new Russian and Ukrainian regulations from a comparative perspective. EU law does not regulate some important issues covered by Russian and Ukrainian legislations, e.g. priority of payments. On the contrary, some useful concepts, which are applicable to consumer loans under EU law, like “linked credits,” “open-end agreements” are absent in both Russian and Ukrainian laws. While comparing new Russian and Ukrainian consumer credit statutes, it is clear that in some aspects the Ukrainian one is pro-consumer, and in some other aspects the Russian one is more pro-consumer. Some provisions of both Russian and Ukrainian consumer credit statutes are very controversial and unclear; in some instances they could lead to debt slavery, so they must be corrected in the future.
