Joint insurance and capitalization costs

Charles S. Tapiero, Laurent Jacque

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper studies the underpinnings of three related issues that arise in joint insurance. These are: capitalization, premium payments and relevance (or irrelevance) of insolvency. Principally, a dynamical model is constructed and investigated in terms of the impact of the policies a joint insurance firm may follow. A discussion relating to agency costs and re-capitalization in joint insurance, as well as a specific case are treated in detail.
