Many similar formulas would work equally well. One possibility would be 1000 3V42 + (1000 P42 − 1000 P40 ) , because prospectively after duration 3, this differs from the normal benefit reserve in that in the next year you collect 1000 P40 instead of 1000 P42 .

Question #16 Key: D

Since the rate of depletion is constant there are only 2 ways the reservoir can be empty sometime within the next 10 days. Way #1: There is no rainfall within the next 5 days Way #2 There is one rainfall in the next 5 days And it is a normal rainfall And there are no further rainfalls for the next five days Prob (Way #1) = Prob(0 in 5 days) = exp(-0.2*5) = 0.3679 Prob (Way #2) = Prob(1 in 5 days) × 0.8 × Prob(0 in 5 days) = 5*0.2 exp(-0.2* 5)* 0.8 * exp(-0.2* 5) = 1 exp(-1) * 0.8 * exp(-1) = 0.1083 Hence Prob empty at some time = 0.3679 + 0.1083 = 0.476

π = Premium = ( 3.7 ) ⎜ ⎟ = 4.93 3

Since we start year 1 with surplus of 3, at end of year 1 we have 4.93, 2.93, or 0.93 (with associated probabilities 0.75, 0.15, 0.10). We cannot drop more then 2.07 in year 2, so ruin occurs only if we are at 0.93 after 1 and have a drop of 2.07. Prob = ( 0.1)( 0.1) = 0.01

* This equation is algebraic manipulation of the three equations in three unknowns

( 1V , 2V , π ) .

One method – usually effective in problems where benefit = stated amount plus reserve, is to multiply the 1V equation by 1.052 , the 2V equation by 1.05, and add those two to the 3V equation: in the result, you can cancel out the 1V , and 2V terms. Or you can substitute the 1V equation into the 2V equation, giving 2V in terms of π , and then substitute that into the 3V equation.

This alternate approach was shown here for educational reasons: to reinforce the idea that many life contingent models and non-life models can have similar structure. We doubt many candidates would take that approach, especially since it involves specific properties of the Pareto distribution.

Question #25 Key: E

Q ≥ P since in Q you only test at intervals; surplus below 0 might recover before the next test. In P, ruin occurs if you are ever below 0. R ≥ P since you are less likely to have surplus below 0 in the first N years (finite horizon) than forever. Add the inequalities

Q + R ≥ 2P Also (why other choices are wrong) S ≥ Q by reasoning comparable to R ≥ P . Same testing frequency in S and Q, but Q tests forever. S ≥ R by reasoning comparable to Q ≥ P . Same horizon in S and R; R tests more frequently. S ≥ P P tests more frequently, and tests forever.

By induction (proof omitted) n V = π sn For n = 35, n V = a60 (actuarial present value of future benefits; there are no future premiums) a60 = π s35

For n = 20,

Alternatively, as above ( nV + π ) (1 + i ) = n+1V Write those equations, for n = 0 to n = 34 0 : ( 0V + π ) (1 + i ) = 1V 1: ( 1V + π )(1 + i ) = 2V

2 : ( 2V + π )(1 + i ) = 3V

34 : ( 34V + π ) (1 + i ) = 35V Multiply equation k by (1 + i )

34 − k

and sum the results:

( 0V + π ) (1 + i )35 + ( 1V + π )(1 + i )34 + ( 2V + π )(1 + i )33 + + ( 34V + π ) (1 + i ) = 34 33 32 + 34V (1 + i ) + 35V 1V (1 + i ) + 2V (1 + i ) + 3V (1 + i ) +

For k = 1, 2, 0V

, 34, the k V (1 + i )

35− k

(1 + i )35 + π ⎡⎣(1 + i )35 + (1 + i )34 +

terms in both sides cancel, leaving + (1 + i ) ⎤ = 35V ⎦

Since 0V = 0 π s35 = 35V = a60 (see above for remainder of solution)

So cumulative premium to time 2 is 2 3/ 2 + 1.8 23/ 6 = 10 , where the expression in parentheses is the annual premium Times between claims are determined by −1/ λ log u and are 0.43, 0.77, 1.37, 2.41 So 2 claims before time 2 (second claim is at 1.20; third is at 2.57) Sizes are 2, 3, 1, 3, where only the first two matter. So gain to the insurer is 10-(2+3) = 5 Note: since the problem did not specify that we wanted the gain or loss from the insurer’s viewpoint, we gave credit to answer A; a loss of 5 from the insured’s viewpoint.
