Management

Pooling and Hedging of Risk

Concept of probability began in 1660s

Concept of probability grew from interest in

gambling.

Mahabarata story (ca. 400 AD) of Nala and

Rtuparna, suggests some probability theory

was understood in India then.

Fire of London 1666 and Insurance

Random variable: A quantity determined by

the outcome of an experiment

Discrete and continuous random variables

Independent trials

Probability P, 0<P<1

Multiplication rule for independent events:

Prob(A and B) = Prob(A)Prob(B)

Rule

Probability of n independent accidents = Pn

Probability of x accidents in n policies

(Binomial Distributon):

f ( x) P (1 P)

Geometric Mean

For positive numbers only

Better than arithmetic mean when used for

A Measure of how much two variables

move together

Correlation

A scaled measure of how much two

variables move together

Expected Utility

Pascals Conjecture

St. Petersburg Paradox, Bernoulli: Toss coin

until you get a head, k tosses, win 2(k-1)

coins.

With log utility, a win after k periods is

worth ln(2k-1)

Consol pays constant quantity x forever

Growing consol pays x(1+g)^t in t years.

Insurance Annuities

Life annuities: Pay a stream of income until a

person dies.

Uncertainty faced by insurer is termination

Companies

Probabilities may change through time

Policy holders may alter probabilities

(moral hazard)

Policy holders may not be representative of

population from which probabilities were

derived
