In this paper, the classical Bonus-Malus Systems (BMS) under which a premium is set by taking into account only the number of accidents each policyholder has, is compared with an optimal BMS under which the premium is set by taking into account both the frequency and the severity of the claims of each policyholder. The number and size of the claims an insured person has are assumed to follow a Geometric distribution and a Pareto distribution, respectively.
