FRIAS Research Project

Actuarial models in financial environment

The aim of the proposed project is a creation in FRIAS a temporary research group working on the development of actuarial models in financial environments. The development will be concentrated on several axes.  First: a general portfolio  theory in the actuarial setting when the investors  have long-term  insurance portfolios with  usual financial assets (stocks, bonds, real assets).  Second:  construction of insurance  contracts acceptable (optimal) for sellers and attractive for buyers. Third: analysis of ruin probabilities (and other functionals)  for companies investing in  risky assets under various assumptions still not covered by existing literature.   The main feature of the proposal is an intensive use of recent ideas coming from mathematical finance like benchmark portfolio and martingale deflators, set-valued risk measures, robust models etc.
