ABSTRACT

The classical Poisson risk model in ruin theory assumed that the interarrival times between two successive claims are mutually independent, and the claim sizes and claim intervals are also mutually independent. In this paper, we modify the classical Poisson risk model to describe the surplus process of an insurance portfolio. We consider a jump-diffusion risk process compounded by a geometric Brownian motion, and assume that the claim sizes and claim intervals are dependent. Using the properties of conditional expectation, we establish integro-differential equations for the Gerber-Shiu function and the ultimate ruin probability.

1. Introduction

Various papers in ruin theory modify the classical Poisson risk model to describe the surplus process of an insurance portfolio. An extension of the classical model is that the risk process perturbed by a diffusion was first introduced by Gerber [1] and has been further studied by many authors during the last few years, e.g. Dufresne and Gerber [2] , Gerber and Landry [3] , Wang and Wu [4] , Tsai and Willmot [5] [6] , Chiu and Yin [7] , and the references therein.

In the risk process that is perturbed by diffusion, the surplus process of an insurance portfolio is given by

(1)

where is the initial surplus, is the positive constant premium income

rate, is the aggregate claims process, in which

is the claim number process (denoting the number of claims up to time t), and the interarrival times is a sequence of positive random variables. is a sequence of nonnegative independent identically distributed (i.i.d.) random variables with distribution function and density function, is a standard Brownian motion that is independent of the aggregate claims process, is a positive constant.

It is explicitly assumed in these papers that the interarrival times and the claim sizes are mutually independent. However, this assumption is often too restrictive in practice, and there is a need for more general models where the independence assumptions can be relaxed. Recently, various results have been obtained concerning the asymptotic behavior of the probability of ruin for dependent claims, see [8] - [14] , as well as the references therein. Zhao [14] assumed that the distribution of the time between two claim occurrences depends on the previous claim size. Motivated by the results of Zhao [14] , the main aim of this paper is to modify the risk model (Equation (1)), and establish integro-differential equations for the Gerber-Shiu function and the ultimate ruin probability in the new risk model.

2. Improved Risk Model

In this paper, it is assumed that the claim occurrence process to be of the following type: If a claim is larger than a random variable, then the time until the next claim is exponentially distributed with rate, otherwise it is exponentially distributed with rate. The quantities are assumed to be i.i.d. random variables with distribution function. Assuming that

,

which is the net profit condition.

In the daily operation of insurance company, in addition to the premium income and claim to the operation of spending has a great influence on the outside, and there is also a factor that interest rates should not be neglected. As in [15] , this paper assume that the risk model Equation (1) is invested in a stochastic interest process which is assumed to be a geometric Brownian motion, where r and σ_{2} are positive constants, and is a standard Brownian motion independent of. Let denote the surplus of the insurer at time t under this investment assumption. Thus,

(2)

Denote T to be the ruin time (the first time that the surplus becomes negative), i.e.,

and if.

This article is interested in the expected discounted penalty (Gerber-Shiu) function:

, (3)

where is the indicator function, is the force of interest and is a nonnegative function of and satisfies.

Furthermore, let be the time when the first claim occurs, and random variable being exponentially distributed with rate. Assuming that

3. Integro-Differential Equations for

In this section, a system of integro-differential equations with initial value conditions satisfied by the Gerber-Shiu function is derived.

tingale. Using the separation variable technique, we find that

Using the initial condition for, we get, consequently

Applying the Optional Stopping Theorem, it follows that

This ends the proof of Lemma 3.1.

Similarly, the following lemma can also be obtained.

Lemma 3.2 Let for. For define the hitting time. Then, for, it can be concluded that

Proof Let be the time when the first claim occurs which exponentially distributed with rate. Consider the risk process defined by Equation (2) in an infinitesimal time interval. There are three possible cases in as follows.

1) There are no claims in with probability, thus;

2) There is exactly one claim in with probability. According to different of the claim amount, there are three possible cases in this case as follows.

a) The amount of the claim, i.e., ruin does not occur, and thus;

b) The amount of the claim, i.e., ruin occurs due to the claim;

c) The amount of the claim, i.e., ruin occurs due to oscillation (observe that the probability that this case occurs is zero).

3) There is more than one claim in with probability.

Thus, considering the three cases above and noting that is a strong Markov process, we have

(11)

By Taylor expansion, we have, thus Equation (11) becomes

(12)

Then, by Itô’s formula we have

. (13)

Therefore, by dividing t on both sides of Equation (12), letting, using Equation (13), we obtain Equation (9), and similarly we can obtain Equation (10).

The condition follows from the oscillating nature of the sample paths of. Now, we prove.

For all, let,. Then, by the strong property of, it can be concluded that

According to Lemma 3.1, it can be concluded that

,

Thus, , and correspondingly. Similar results can be derived for.

And for all, let, , according to Lemma 3.2 we obtain, thus.

This ends the proof of Theorem 3.1.

4. Differential Equations for

Let and in Equation (3), correspondingly the expected discounted penalty function turns into the ultimate ruin probability.

Obviously,

with the initial value conditions

Proof According to Equation (9), it can be concluded that

By taking the derivative with respect to u on both sides of the above formula, and after some careful calculations, we obtain Equation (14). And similarly we can prove that Equation (15) holds. This ends the proof of Theorem 4.1.

5. Conclusion

In this paper, we consider a jump-diffusion risk process compounded by a geometric Brownian motion with dependence between claim sizes and claim intervals. We derive the integro-differential equations for the Gerber-Shiu functions and the ultimate ruin probability by using the martingale measure. Further studies are needed for the numerical solution of Equations (9), (10), (14) and (15). The results derived in this paper can be generalized to similar dependence ruin models.
