Conference paper


In traditional insurance situations contracts are based in general on experience rating. Usually it is assumed that the agent is insured during a given planning period. The problem then is to decide whether in some period a given loss should be claimed or not. The insurance premium depends on the individual claim history of the agent. Contrary, the insurance of financial assets is based on the performance of capital markets. It is known as portfolio insurance (cp. e. g. Schwartz (1986/87)).
