Determining the retention level in the stop-loss insurance risk premium for both insurerand reinsurer is an important factor in pricing. This paper aims to set optimal reinsurancewith 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 ofretention (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 forboth parties are based on the selected distributions. Quantification of the premium shareover derived exposure curves based on the optimized retention and maximum levels andthe 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...
Constant proportion portfolio insurance in defined contribution pension plan management under discrete-time trading
TEMOÇİN, BÜŞRA ZEYNEP; KORN, Ralf; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe (2018-01-01)
Portfolio insurance strategies are designed to protect investors against adverse market movements by providing an initially specified guarantee during the investment period. This kind of a protection mechanism is especially important for systems with long investment horizons such as pension plans. In this paper, we consider various versions of the Constant Proportion Portfolio Insurance (CPPI) method under discrete-time trading for a defined-contribution pension plan that includes regular contributions of r...
Reinsurance pricing using exposure curve of two dependent risks
Akarsu, Gülçin; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Lourdes Centeno, Maria de; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2018)
It is known that experience rating and exposure rating are used for insurance and reinsurance pricing by many practitioners. One of the main tools of exposure rating which is commonly used is exposure curves. It evaluates the percents of pure risk premium shared by insurer and reinsurer. In practice, the exposure curves which depend solely on claim history are widely utilized as an important indicator to determine the price and retention level based on the preferences and strategies of the insurer and reins...
