Economic capital allocations for non-negative portfolios of dependent risks

Edward Furman, Zinoviy Landsman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we explore the problem of economic capital allocations in the context of non-negative multivariate (insurance) risks possessing a dependence structure. We derive a general result and illustrate it with a number of useful examples. One such example, for instance, develops explicit expressions for the discussed economic capital decomposition rule when the underlying portfolio consists of dependent compound Poisson risks.
