4 The meaning of basic reserves In the previous section we have considered the valuation of cash flows X ∈ L2n+1 (P, F) at any time t = 0, . . , n. In the insurance industry however, we are mainly interested in the valuation of the future cash flows (0, . . , 0, Xt+1 , . . , Xn ) if we are at time t. For these cash flows we need to build reserves in our balance sheet, because they refer to the outstanding (loss) liabilities. This means that we need to predict Xk , k > t, and assign market-consistent values to them, based on the information Ft .

31) We now consider the zero coupon bond Z(1) . 26%. Step 2. Now we construct the deflators. e. 60. Moreover, let X1 (ωi ) denote the payout at time 1 of the risky asset X = (0, X1 ), if we are in state ωi at time 1. 31)) 2 Q(ωi ) X1 (ωi ). 33) i=1 Note: so far we have not used any probabilities! Now we assume that we are in state ω1 at time 1 with probability p(ω1 ) ∈ (0, 1) and in state ω2 with probability p(ω2 ) = 1 − p(ω1 ). 34) i=1 2 = p(ωi ) i=1 =E Q(ωi ) X1 (ωi ) p(ωi ) Q X1 . 35) which immediately implies the pricing formula Q [X] = E [ϕ1 X1 ] .

33) i=1 Note: so far we have not used any probabilities! Now we assume that we are in state ω1 at time 1 with probability p(ω1 ) ∈ (0, 1) and in state ω2 with probability p(ω2 ) = 1 − p(ω1 ). 34) i=1 2 = p(ωi ) i=1 =E Q(ωi ) X1 (ωi ) p(ωi ) Q X1 . 35) which immediately implies the pricing formula Q [X] = E [ϕ1 X1 ] . 95. 3 Valuation at time t > 0 21 Note that in our example the deflator ϕ1 is not necessarily smaller than 1. 2. This may be counter-intuitive from an economic point of view but makes perfect sense in our model world.
