# Optimal premium allocation under stop-loss insurance using exposure curves

2021-11-01
Determining the retention level in the stop-loss insurance risk premium for both insurer and reinsurer is an important factor in pricing. This paper aims to set optimal reinsurance with respect to the joint behavior of the insurer and the reinsurer under stop-loss contracts. The dependence between the costs of insurer and reinsurer is expressed as a function of retention (d) and maximum-cap (m) levels. Based on the maximum degree of correlation, the optimal levels for d and m are derived under certain claim distributions (Pareto, Gamma and Inverse Gamma). Accordingly, the risk premium and exposure curves for both parties are based on the selected distributions. Quantification of the premium share over derived exposure curves based on the optimized retention and maximum levels and the maximum loss risk is obtained using VaR and CVaR as risk measures.

 Time dependent stop-loss reinsurance and exposure curves Mert, Özenç Murat (2021-06-01) Stop-loss contracts are the most commonly used reinsurance agreements in insurance whose important factors are the retention and the maximum (cap) values attained on the random loss, which may occur within the policy period. Therefore, determining and forecasting the loss amounts is an important issue for both the insurer and the reinsurer. Along with many approaches in actuarial literature, we propose a geometric Brownian motion (BM) with the time-varying parameters to capture the time-dependent loss amoun...
 Utilization of outlier-adjusted lee-carter model in mortality estimation on whole life annuities Yavrum, Cem; Selçuk Kestel, A. Sevtap.; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2019) Annuity and its pricing are very critical to the insurance companies for their financial liabilities. Companies aim to adjust the prices of annuity by choosing the forecasting model that fits best to their historical data. While doing it, there may be outliers in the historical data influencing the model. These outliers can be arisen from environmental conditions and extraordinary events such as weak health system, outbreak of war, occurrence of a contagious disease. These conditions and events impact morta...
 Clustering Influence On MTPL Premium Estimation Using Credibility Approach Kızıloğlu, İsmail Onur; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Yıldırım Külekci, Bükre; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2023-1-27) Pricing is one of the crucial aspects of the insurance industry. There are compulsory regulations on Motor Third Party Liability Insurance in Türkiye. After the cap premium, the significance of correct pricing for the profitability of the companies has increased even more. In this thesis, premiums are estimated quarterly using Bühlmann and Bühlmann-Straub credibility methods for the cities of Türkiye. First, the cities are sorted according to the total number of claims and divided into at least 3 and at mos...
