“Optimal drawdown-based decision making for insurance companies

Abstract: A drawdown is the absolute distance of the current surplus to its historical peak and can therefore be considered as a risk measure.

Indeed, whilst large and long-lasting drawdowns might manifest existing financial and reputational risks, small and infrequent drawdowns can be considered a sign of economic strength and steadiness. For this reason, minimising drawdowns is desirable for companies -- especially in insurance business, where the trust of policyholders is the basis for success. To control the drawdowns, insurance companies can, for instance, use investments and reinsurance.

In this talk, we consider the stochastic optimisation problem of minimising the expected duration time of "large" drawdowns by means of reinsurance or investments. It is assumed that the surplus of the insurer follows an arithmetic Brownian motion, and that drawdowns exceeding a prespecified level d>0 are threatening for the company. We identify the optimal reinsurance and investment strategies minimising the time when the current drawdown exceeds d and discuss results and implications of the model.
