Finite time survival probabilities under renewal risk models

Jorge Garcia

Abstract: In this paper, by considering an ordinary renewal risk model, we show that explicit formulae for survival probabilities in a finite time horizon can be derived through a series expansion of the joint distribution of the time and severity of ruin. Furthermore, the model allows the capitalization of premiums and claims may depend on inflation. A special application to Pareto distributed claims is done by using an approximation that does not depend explicitly on the heavy tail.
