Bivariate maximum insurance claim and related point processes


  • Hashorva, Enkelejd


Let X1,X2,... be independent bivariate claim sizes arising from an insurance portfolio. The number of claims occurring in the time interval [0,t] is denoted by N(t). We investigate in this paper distributional and asymptotic properties of the following point process:with XN(t):N(t), the bivariate maximum insurance claim occurring during [0,t]. We show that are strongly consistent estimators of a certain tail probability of the claim size distribution. Further, we investigate the connection between convergence in distribution of the bivariate maximum claim size and weak convergence of . As a byproduct, a result for the ECOMOR reinsurance treaty is obtained.
