The author describes a Bayesian approach for forecasting in general insurance. The techniques are specializations of the dynamic linear model described by P. J. Harrison and C. F. Stevens [J. R. Stat. Soc., Ser. B 38, 205-247 (1976; Zbl 0349.62062)]. The system is applied in a Norwegian insurance company and ends with an example of a Houseowners’ comprehensive insurance portfolio. The paper is part of the author’s doctoral dissertation.
