Description: We propose a model for valuing ruin contingent life annuities under the regime-switching variance gamma process. The Esscher transform is employed to determine the equivalent martingale measure. The P ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/163850
Description: Under discrete-time GARCH models markets are incomplete so there is more than one price kernel for valuing contingent claims. This motivates the quest for selecting an appropriate price kernel. Differ ... More
