Empirical Issues In Crop Reinsurance Decisions
AbstractThis paper investigates the role of reinsurance in the managing the liquidity or reserve fund risks facing a crop insurer. Using 31 years of data, combined with Monte Carlo simulation the paper illustrates a mechanism for calculating reinsurance premiums and determining the post insurance risk profile. The insured event is over a range of loss ratios, and the focus of the paper is on reserve fund balances.
