Statistical Analysis in Risk Management

- Two main approaches:
- Maximum probable loss (or MPY)
- if $5 million is the maximum probable loss at the _______percent level, then the firm’s losses will be less than $_____million with probability 0.95.
- Same concept as “Value at risk”

When to Use the Normal Distribution

- Most loss distributions are not normal
- From the __________ theorem, using the normal distribution will nevertheless be appropriate when
- Example where it might be appropriate:

Using the Normal Distribution

- Important property
- If Losses are normally distributed with
- Then
- Probability (Loss < ) = 0.95
- Probability (Loss < ) = 0.99

Using the Normal Distribution - An Example

- Worker compensation losses for Stallone Steel
- sample mean loss per worker = $_____
- sample standard deviation per worker = $20,000
- number of workers = ________

- Assume total losses are normally distributed with
- mean = $3 million
- standard deviation =

- Then maximum probable loss at the 95 percent level is
- $3 million + = $6.3 million

A Limitation of the Normal Distribution

- Applies only to aggregate losses, not _______losses
- Thus, it cannot be used to analyze decisions about per occurrence deductibles and limits

Monte Carlo Simulation

- Overcomes some of the shortcomings of the normal distribution approach
- Overview:
- Make assumptions about distributions for ________ and _______ of individual losses
- Randomly draw from each distribution and calculate the firm’s total losses under alternative risk management strategies
- Redo step two many times to obtain a distribution for total losses

A. Total Loss Profile

1. E(L) forecast

a. single best estimate ……….

b. variations from this number will occur, therefore …

2. Example for a large company.(next slide)

mode, median

expected = $

Pr(L) > $11,500,000 =

Pr(L) > $14,000,000 =

B. Monte Carlo Steps

1. Select frequency distribution

2. Select severity distribution

3. Draw from ________ distribution => N1 losses

4. Draw N1 severity values from severity distribution

5. Repeat steps____and ____ for 1000 or more iterations

Simulation Example - Assumptions

- Claim frequency follows a Poisson distribution
- Important property: Poisson distribution gives the probability of 0 claims, 1 claim, 2 claims, etc.

Simulation Example - Assumptions

- Claim severity follows a
- expected value =
- standard deviation =
- note skewness
