While studying this scatter plot, which does not cluster along the diagonal as desired, a “bundled loss” phenomenon is found. In a setting where both the hedging and … Read more

Relay Optimization Method

Insurance-linked securities portfolio with the VaR constraint optimization problem have a kind of weak dominance or ordering property, which enables us to reduce the variables’ dimensions gradually through exercising a genetic algorithm with randomly selected initial populations. This property also enables us to add boundary attraction potential to GA-MPC’s repair operator, among other modifications such … Read more
