Risk assessment of insurances

Insurance companies create risk profiles for their customers. These profiles are usually generic, while in theory, it is possible to make a more precise risk profile for a specific group of customers. The goal of this project will be to obtain more specific risk profiles. First, customers can be clustered, using several variables like age, education level, income, and many more. After the clusters are obtained, a risk profile can be assigned to each cluster, and hence to each individual. These risk profiles will be more specific and more realistic, allowing the insurance company to make a better assessment of future costs.
