Abstract

This paper studies capital allocation problems using a general loss function. Stochastic comparisons are conducted for general loss functions in several scenarios: independent and identically distributed risks; independent but non-identically distributed risks; comonotonic risks. Applications in optimal capital allocations and policy limits allocations are discussed as well.
