On barrier strategy dividends with Parisian implementation delay for classical surplus processes. (English) Zbl 1231.91430
Summary: We apply a single barrier strategy to optimise dividend payments in the situation where there is a time lag \(d>0\) between decision and implementation. Using a classical surplus process with exponentially distributed jumps, we obtain the optimal barrier \(b^{\ast }\) which maximises the expected present value of dividends.
