Distributional uncertainty with loss functions
报告人： Fangda Liu (University of Waterloo）
The model uncertainty is of crucial importance when market participants are making risk management strategies. For a participant who adopts law-invariant risk measures for quantification, the study of the supremum of risk measure values can help the participant to better understand the performance of risk in the worst-case scenario. In this talk, we introduce several model uncertainty settings. The choices of risk measures, uncertainty sets, and transformations of the underlying risk play important roles in the characterization of the worst-case distribution. Motivated by the insurance policies, we mainly focus on stop-loss functions and limited loss functions. Furthermore, we discuss the optimal retention levels for participants in an insurance policy with model uncertainties.
