Optimal reinsurance and investment for a jump diffusion risk process under the CEV model. (English) Zbl 1291.91121

Summary: We consider an optimal reinsurance-investment problem of an insurer whose surplus process follows a jump-diffusion model. In our model the insurer transfers part of the risk due to insurance claims via a proportional reinsurance and invests the surplus in a “simplified” financial market consisting of a risk-free asset and a risky asset. The dynamics of the risky asset are governed by a constant elasticity of variance model to incorporate conditional heteroscedasticity. The objective of the insurer is to choose an optimal reinsurance-investment strategy so as to maximize the expected exponential utility of terminal wealth. We investigate the problem using the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman dynamic programming approach. Explicit forms for the optimal reinsuranceinvestment strategy and the corresponding value function are obtained. Numerical examples are provided to illustrate how the optimal investment-reinsurance policy changes when the model parameters vary.
