The compound Poisson approximation for a portfolio of dependent risks
AbstractA very well known approximation of the aggregate claims distribution in the individual risk theory model with mutually independent individual risks is the compound Poisson approximation. In this paper, we relax the assumption of independency and show that the same compound Poisson approximation will still perform well under certain circumstances.
