Asymptotic analysis of a risk process with high dividend barrier

Abstract

In this paper we study a risk model with constant high dividend barrier. We apply Keilson's (1966) results to the asymptotic distribution of the time until occurrence of a rare event in a regenerative process, and then results of the cycle maxima for random walk to obtain the asymptotic distribution of the time to ruin and the amount of dividends paid until ruin.
