On ruin probability and aggregate claim representations for Pareto claim size distributions
We generalize an integral representation for the ruin probability in a Crámer-Lundberg risk model with shifted (or also called US-)Pareto claim sizes, obtained by Ramsay (2003), to classical Pareto(a) claim size distributions with arbitrary real values a>1 and derive its asymptotic expansion. Furthermore an integral representation for the tail of compound sums of Pareto-distributed claims is obtained and numerical illustrations of its performance in comparison to other aggregate claim approximations are provided.
