title = "Pricing Reinsurance Contracts",

abstract = "Pricing and hedging insurance contracts is hard to perform if we subscribeto the hypotheses of the celebrated Black and Scholes model. Incomplete marketmodels allow for the relaxation of hypotheses that are unrealistic for insurance and reinsurance contracts. One such assumption is the tradeability of the underlying asset. To overcome this drawback, we propose in this chapter a stochastic programming model leading to a superhedging portfolio whose final value is at least equal to the insurance final liability. A simple model extension, furthermore, is shown to be sufficient to determine an optimal reinsurance protection for the insurer: we propose a conditional value at risk (VaR) model particularly suitable for large-scale problem instances and rationale from a risk theoretic point of view.",
