On simple ruin expressions in dependent Sparre Andersen risk models. (English) Zbl 1286.91063
Summary: In this note we provide a simple alternative probabilistic derivation of an explicit formula of I. K. M. Kwan and H. Yang [“Ruin probability in a threshold insurance risk model”, Belg. Actuar. Bull. 7, 41–49 (2007), http://www.belgianactuarialbulletin.be/browse.php?issue=77-8] for the probability of ruin in a risk model with a certain dependence between general claim interoccurrence times and subsequent claim sizes of conditionally exponential type. The approach puts the type of formula in a general context, illustrating the potential for similar simple ruin probability expressions in more general risk models with dependence.
