Ruin Probability in Finite Time
The ruin probability in finite time can only be calculated analytically for a few special cases of the claim amount distribution. The most classic example is discussed in Section 1.2. The value can always be computed directly using Monte Carlo simulations, however, this is usually a time-consuming procedure. Thus, finding a reliable approximation is really important from a practical point of view. The most important approximations of the finite time ruin probability are presented in Section 1.3. They are further illustrated in Section 1.4 using the Danish fire losses dataset, which concerns major fire losses in profits that occurred between 1980 and 2002 and were recorded by Copenhagen Re.
