Finite time ruin probability with heavy-tailed insurance and financial risks. (English) Zbl 1171.91348

Summary: The probability of ruin within a finite time for a discrete-time model, in which the insurance risk is assumed to be heavy tailed. A precise asymptotic estimate for the finite-time ruin probability is established as the initial capital increases, extending the corresponding result of Q. Tang and G. Tsitsiashvilli [Stochastic Processes 108, 299–325 (2003; Zbl 1075.91563)] to the subexponential case.
