A periodic-review insurance model is considered under the following assumptions. In order to avoid ruin the insurer maintains the company surplus above a chosen level a by capital injections at the end of each period. One-period insurance claims form a sequence of independent identically distributed nonnegative random variables with finite mean. A nonproportional reinsurance is applied for minimization of total expected discounted injections during a given planning horizon of n periods. Insurance and reinsurance premiums are calculated using the expected value principle. Optimal reinsurance strategy is established. Numerical results illustrating the theoretical ones are provided for three claims distributions.
- Capital injection
- Discrete-time insurance model
- Nonproportional reinsurance
- Optimal strategy
