Research output: Working paperDiscussion paperOther research output


In this paper we study the investment behavior of an insurance company consisting of policy and equity holders and issuing fair valued guaranteed contracts.Building up on the work of Briys and De Varenne (1997) and De Munnik and Schotman (1994) an intertemporal stochastic asset model and an interest rate model are specified and a procedure to estimate the required parameters is developed.Next, simulation is used to generate risk/return profiles for different investment portfolios and various guaranteed return contracts.It is shown that hedging the guaranteed return contracts is of primary importance to derive attractive risk/return profiles for both the policyholders and the equity holders.
