Asymptotic behaviour of the finite-time ruin probability under subexponential claim sizes. (English) Zbl 1183.91073
Summary: The paper deals with the Sparre Andersen risk model. We study the tail behaviour of the finite-time ruin probability, \(\Psi (x,t)\), in the case of subexponential claim sizes as initial risk reserve \(x\) tends to infinity. The asymptotic formula holds uniformly for \(t\) in a corresponding region and reestablishes a formula of Q. Tang [Stoch. Models 20, No. 3, 281–297 (2004; Zbl 1130.60312)] obtained for the class of claim distributions having consistent variation.
