2 886 Osaa Hanafy Mahoud. Intoduction Insuance copanies need to investigate clais epeience and apply atheatical techniques fo any puposes such as ateaking, eseving, einsuance aangeents and solvency. Many papes have been pesented to aggegate losses as: Heckan and Meyes (983 discussed aggegate loss distibutions fo the pespective of collective isk theoy fo seveity and count distibutions. They include eaples fo calculating the pue peiu fo a policy with an aggegate liit, calculating the pue peiu of an aggegate stoploss policy fo goup life insuance; and calculating the insuance chage fo a ultiline etospective ating plan, including a line which is itself subject to an aggegate liit. Vente (983, Distibution functions ae intoduced based on powe tansfoations of beta and gaa distibutions, and popeties of these distibutions ae discussed. The gaa, beta, F, Paeto, Bu, Weibull and loglogistic distibutions ae special cases. The tansfoed gaa is used to odel aggegate distibutions by atching oents. The tansfoed beta is used to account fo paaete uncetainty in this odel. Robetson (99, Povided an application of the fast Fouie tansfo to the coputation of aggegate loss distibutions fo abitay fequency and seveity distibutions. Papush el al (, addessed the question what type of oal, ognoal and Gaa distibutions is the ost appopiate to use to appoiate aggegate loss distibution. Vila et al. (8, descibed a nonpaaetic appoach to ake infeence fo aggegate loss odels in the insuance faewok by assuing that an insuance copany povides a histoical saple of clais given by clai occuence ties and clai sizes. Botoluzzo et al. (9, aied estiating clai size in the auto insuance by using zeo adjusted Invese Gaussian distibution. Shevchenko ( eviewed nueical algoiths that can be successfully used to calculate the aggegate loss distibutions. In paticula Monte Calo, Panje ecusion and Fouie tansfoation ethods ae pesented and copaed. Also, seveal closedfo appoiations based on oent atching and asyptotic esult fo heavytailed distibutions ae eviewed. One of the ost significant goals of any insuance isk activity is to achieve a satisfactoy odel fo the pobability distibution of the total clai aount. In this pape, we intoduce a statistical distibution known as Eponentiated Inveted Weibull (EIW distibution to epesent the clai aount and its chaacteistics fo applying it in actuaial studies. This pape is oganized as follows: Section we pesentsthe Model clai seveity unde Eponentiated Inveted Weibull Distibution and test the tail weight

Section 4 we pesent ou aggegate loss odel unde collective isk theoy when the clai fequency distibution is Poisson o egative Binoial distibution. Section 5, how to calculate the einsuance pue peiu in case of stop loss einsuance. Finally, The siulation nueical eaple is given to epesent ou esults.. The Model unde Eponentiated Inveted Weibull Distibution Recently any studies in pobability distibutions and its applications pesented the Eponentiated Inveted Weibull distibution as: Flaih et al (, Consideed the standad eponentiated inveted weibull distibution (EIW that genealizes the standad inveted weibull distibution (IW, the new distibution has two shape paaetes. The oents, edian, suvival function, hazad function, aiu likelihood estiatos, leastsquaes estiatos, fishe infoation ati and asyptotic confidence intevals have been discussed. A eal data set is analyzed and it is obseved that the (EIW distibution can povide a bette fitting than (IW distibution. Aljouhaah Aljuaid, (3, pesented Bayes and classical estiatos have been obtained fo two paaetes eponentiated inveted Weibull distibution when saple is available fo coplete and type II censoing schee. Hassan (3, dealt with the optial designing of failue step stess patially acceleated life tests with two stess levels unde typei censoing. The lifetie of the test ites is assued to follow eponentiated inveted Weibull distibution. Hassan et al. (4, pesented estiation of population paaetes fo the eponentiated inveted Weibull distibution based on gouped data with equi and unequispaced gouping. Seveal altenative estiation schees, such as, the ethod of aiu likelihood, least squaes, iniu chisquae, and odified iniu chisquae ae consideed. If ou clais aount of insuance potfolio,, 3,, follow the n Eponentiated Inveted Weibull (EIW distibution with paaetes and in the following fo fo the pobability density function (pdf: f ( ( e (,, ( Theefoe, its cuulative pobability function (cpf can be witten in the fo: F( ( e,, ( The (ight tail of a distibution is the potion of the distibution coesponding to
4 888 Osaa Hanafy Mahoud lage values of the ando vaiable. A distibution is said to be a heavytailed distibution if it significantly puts oe pobability on lage values of the ando vaiable. We also say that the distibution has a lage tail weight. In contast, a distibution that puts less and less pobability fo lage values of the ando vaiable is said to be lighttailed distibution. To test the tail weight of a distibution, we can use the Eistence of Moents ethod as follows: A distibution f ( is said to be lighttailed if E ( fo all and the distibution f ( is said to be heavytailed if eithe does not eist fo all o the oents eist only up to a cetain value of a positive intege, Finan (4. The th oents of the eponentiated inveted weibull distibution is given as follows: ( ( e d,, This can be witten as: (,, (3 Poof: The pdf of the EIW distibution is: f ( ( e (,, The th oents function can be witten in the fo: f ( d ( e ( d By taking tansfoation H We can wite the th oents function as: ( H H H H e By siplification of the above equation,we can get H e H dh dh This integal known as gaa function, theefoe the th oents function is:
5 Constuction actuaial odel fo aggegate loss 889 Fo the above equation, we can find to obtain the th oent ust the value of geate than to be eist. Since the oents ae not finite fo all positive ; the eponentiated inveted weibull distibution is heavytailed. Fo the above equation, we can find the ean and the vaiance of EIW distibution as follows: By putting = (4 (,, And the second oent by putting = in the fo: (,, (5 Thus the vaiance is: V( ( ( ( 3. Maiu ikelihood Estiation (ME fo paaetes Suppose that we have postulated a pobability odel, such as the Eponented Inveted Weibull distibution, to descibe a given loss aount distibution. The net step in ou pocedue should be to estiate values fo the paaetes of the odel. We use the aiu likelihood ethod (ME fo estiating the unknown paaetes and of Eponented Inveted Weibull distibution, as follows: (, f ( i i Then the likelihood function is as follows, (, i ( e ( e ( i ( i i ( ( i i by taking the natual logaith fo the likelihood function, we get (6

The fist deivatives fo the natual logaith of the likelihood function with espect to and, ae given by ln (, i (8 i ln (, ( i ln i ln (9 i i The aiu likelihood estiatos of and could be obtained by equating the equations (8 and (9 by zeo, and solving the siultaneously using an iteative technique. We obtain the appoiate vaiance covaiance ati by eplacing epected values by thei aiu likelihood estiatos and inveting the Fishe infoation ati, defined by: ln I ln ln ln Whee, the second deivatives of the natual logaith of likelihood function defined in equation (6 ae given as follows: i ln (, ( ln (, ( i ln i ( ln (, i i ( i (ln i The ME ˆ and ˆ have an asyptotic vaiance covaiance ati obtained by inveting the Fishe infoation ati. 4.

Then the aggegate losses is S whee the su of clai aounts as: S 3 Suppose also that the individual loss aounts i ae independent on the annual loss fequency. Then it follows that: The pobability density function (pdf of aggegate losses is k * k f ( S p( k f ( s (3 s * Whee f k ( s is called the k th fold convolution of 3 the k th fold convolutions ae often eteely difficult to copute in pactice and theefoe one encountes difficulties dealing with the pobability distibution of S: An altenative appoach is to use vaious appoiation techniques. We conside a technique known as the Panje ecusive foula. The ean and vaiance of aggegate loss distibution can get as: s V ( s V ( V ( (4 The picing poble usually educes to finding oent of S. A coon picing foula is pice s k v( s Whee the pice is the epected payout plus a isk loading which k ties the vaiance of the payout fo soe k. The epected payout E (s is also known as the pue peiu and it can be shown to be E (. Estiation the Mean and the Vaiance of Aggegate losses Distibution: We will conside Poisson and egative Binoial distibutions fo the fequency distibution of losses as follows: I. Poisson Distibution Suppose that the annual fequency of losses fo a potfolio follows a Poisson distibution with paaete. In this case the ean of the loss distibution is:

In this case the ean of the loss distibution is: p E ( s ( (7 p p p V ( s ( ( p (8 p 5. Stop oss Reinsuance Gauge and Hosking (8 and Finan (4 pesented the stop loss einsuance as: When a deductible D is applied to the aggegate loss S ove a definite peiod, then the insuance payent will be, S D S D MaS D, S S^ D S D, S D the einsue will pay the insue an aount equal to S D. The insue's etained loss is thus S^ D. The ain poble is how to calculate the einsuance pue peiu?. the einsuance pue peiu is payent as the stoploss e insuance. Its epected cost is called the net stoploss peiu and can be coputed as: E S D F ( d d f ( d (9 6. ueical Results D S S D In this section, we will pesent a nueical investigation of the aiu likelihood estiation fo the paaetes of and. We need to estiate the two paaetes and by using the aiu likelihood ethod. So, we will need to solve the thee nonlinea equations of

We can notice that the absolute value of the diffeence between the tue value of the paaete and its estiato is sall value conveges to zeo, so these estiatos ae said to be consistent estiatos. Estiate the ean and the vaiance of EIW distibution By substituting the estiated values of the paaetes ˆ and ˆ in equations (4 and (5, we can get the ean and the vaiance of EIW distibution as shown in Table (: Table ( The estiated ean and vaiance of EIW distibution ˆ ˆ E ( E ( V (

By testing the tail of the EIW distibution, we find it has heavy tail. The aiu likelihood ethod was applied fo estiating the paaetes of distibution. Unde collective isk odel, we estiate the ean and the vaiance of the aggegate losses distibution whee the fequency distibution fo clai counts is Poisson o egative Binoial. If we identify the aggegate losses distibution, we can depend on it to ateaking, aangeent fo stop of loss einsuance and estiate the needed loss eseve.
