Gross premium : not only cover insurance benefit, but also cover expenses and profit , etc. Tianxiang Shi(tim.shi@uwaterloo.ca) Chapter 6 Premium calculations Introduction Lossatissue random variable Net lossatissue r.v. ( net future loss ): L n = PV of benefit outgo PV of net premium income Gross lossatissue r.v. ( gross future loss ): L g = PV of benefit outgo + PV of expenses PV of gross premium income Tianxiang Shi(tim.shi@uwaterloo.ca) Chapter 6 Premium calculations Introduction Example: Net lossatissue random variable Example An insurer issues a whole life insurance to [60], with sum insured $1,000,000 payable immediately on death. Premiums are payable annually in advance, ceasing at age 80 or on earlier death. The net annual premium is P. Write down the net future loss random variable, L n , for this type of contract in terms of life random variables for [60]. Tianxiang Shi(tim.shi@uwaterloo.ca) Chapter 6 Premium calculations Introduction Premium determination principles There are several ways to determine premiums for a particular benefit. Equivalence principle : Net premium: EPV of benefit = EPV of premiums most common principle in traditional life insurance. we assume equivalence principle throughout this class unless otherwise specified . Gross premium: EPV of benefit + EPV of expenses = EPV of gross premiums under equivalence principle Net premium: set E [ L n ] = 0 Gross premium: set E [ L g ] = 0 Tianxiang Shi(tim.shi@uwaterloo.ca) Chapter 6 Premium calculations Introduction Premium determination principles Contd Percentile principle : sets the premium at a level such that the probability for the insurer to suffer a loss is no larger than a given level. applies to individual case, or portfolio case (in this case, the normal approximation is usually involved)....
