Modeling premiums of non-life insurance companies in India

  title={Modeling premiums of non-life insurance companies in India},
  author={Kartik Sethi and Siddhartha P. Chakrabarty},
We undertake an empirical analysis for the premium data of non-life insurance companies operating in India, in the paradigm of fitting the data for the parametric distribution of Lognormal and the extreme value based distributions of Generalized Extreme Value and Generalized Pareto. The best fit to the data for ten companies considered, is obtained for the Generalized Extreme Value distribution. 


Generalized Pareto Fit to the Society of Actuaries’ Large Claims Database
Abstract This paper discusses a statistical modeling strategy based on extreme value theory to describe the behavior of an insurance portfolio, with particular emphasis on large claims. The strategy
Operational Risk Modeling:Theory and Practice
This thesis studies the Loss Distribution Approach for modeling of Operational Risk under Basel II from a practical and general perspective. Initial analysis supports the use of the Peaks over Thre
On Composite Models: Weibull-Pareto and Lognormal-Pareto. - A comparative study -
In this paper we make a comparison between two composite models: lognormal-Pareto and Weibull-Pareto. The first one was introduced by Cooray and Ananda in 2005. The second composite distribution was
Fitting the generalized Pareto distribution to commercial fire loss severity: evidence from Taiwan
This paper focuses on modeling and estimating tail parameters of loss distributions from Taiwanese commercial fire loss severity. Using extreme value theory, we employ the generalized Pareto
Actuarial modelling of extremal events using transformed generalized extreme value distributions and generalized pareto distributions
In 1928, Extreme Value Theory (EVT) originated in work of Fisher and Tippett describing the behavior of maximum of independent and identically distributed random variables. Various applications have
