Special Issue in Risks: Heavy-Tailed Distributions in Risk Management
Risk theory provides the mathematical background for sustainable insurance businesses. Furthermore, insurance represents a tool for the stabilization of the market and the preservation of the economic equilibrium. These two links are the focus of this Special Issue, and represent a contemporary approach towards the determination of the prerequisites for economic stability.
The case of large claims is very interesting as a major reason for insurance instability, and the manipulation of such claims plays a crucial role in the operation of the insurance system. The optimization of the reserves and premiums is also relevant. Numerical and analytical methods can be very useful.
Economic instability produces unpredictable difficulties in insurance practice. On the one hand, there is less liquidity in the market and on the other the claim distributions develop heavier tails. The results typically provide some economic insight and should be oriented to practical applications in the market. Insurance factors can have access to confidential information that helps to take optimal decisions.
