Ruin probabilities under optimal investment and proportional reinsurance policy in jump diffusion risk process

Yiping Qian, Xiang Lin

Abstract


In this paper, we consider an insurance company whose surplus (reserve) is modeled by a jump diffusion risk process. The insurance company can invest part of its surplus in $n$ risky assets and purchase proportional reinsurance for claims. Our main goal is to find an optimal investment and proportional reinsurance policy which minimizes the ruin probability. We apply stochastic control theory to solve this problem. We obtain the close form expression for the minimal ruin probability, optimal investment and proportional reinsurance policy. We find that the minimal ruin probability satisfies the Lundberg equality. We also investigate the effects of the diffusion volatility parameter, the market price of risk and the correlation coefficient on the minimal ruin probability, optimal investment and proportional reinsurance policy by numerical calculation.
