The Total Claim Amount in a Portfolio

  • Hans U. Gerber
Chapter

Abstract

We consider a certain portfolio of insurance policies and the total amount of claims arising from it during a given period (e.g. a year). We are particularly interested in the probability distribution of the total claim amount, which will allow us to estimate the risk and show whether or not there is a need for reinsurance.
