Lecture Content

This course is a fundamental training course for first time learners.  As we are targeting people who are busy on a daily basis, we will make lecture contents aimed at “mastering what we learn on each given day.”  Specifically, exercises will be held each day to focus on basic essential matters in order to learn the contents as described on the spot.  There are simple problems.  You will be able to answer by referring to the textbook.  Please aim for full marks.

Also, although not related to the examination, we will talk about other pension-related information as far as time permits. (For example, in the Christian world when intellectual interest was forbidden, the church still used a pension system and paid interest).  Such topics will likely be useful subjects for when chatting with customers about company pensions.

The contents of each unit are scheduled as follows:
Part 1: Basic knowledge of pension mathematics
Part 2: Basic knowledge of pension mathematics (continued)
Part 3: Pension present value
Part 4: Pension present value (continued)
Part 5: Financial systems
Part 6: Financial methods (continued)
Part 7: Financial methods (continued)
Part 8: Validation of pension finances
Part 9: Japanese corporate pension system and pension mathematics
Part 10: Summary / Other

 We will use the following teaching materials, so please prepare accordingly.
