Aggregate risk model and risk measure-based risk allocation

Khreshna Syuhada


In actuarial modeling, aggregate risk is known as more attractive rather than individual risk. It has, however, usual difficulty in finding (the exact form of) joint probability distribution. This paper considers aggregate risk model and employ translated gamma approximation to handle such distribution function formulation. In addition, we deal with the problem of risk allocation in such model. We com- pute in particular risk allocation based on risk measure forecasts of Value-at-Risk (VaR) and its extensions: improved VaR and Tail VaR. Risk allocation shows the contribution of each individual risk to the aggregate. It has a constraint that the risk measure of aggregate risk is equal to the aggregate of risk measure of individual risk.

Keywords: Allocation methods, Tail-Value-at-Risk, translated gamma approximation.
