Mortality Risk Management

Lin, Yijia 08 May 2006 (has links)
This is a multi–essay dissertation in the area of mortality risk management. The first essay investigates natural hedging between life insurance and annuities and then proposes a mortality swap between a life insurer and an annuity insurer. Compared with reinsurance, capital markets have a greater capacity to absorb insurance shocks, and they may offer more flexibility to meet insurers’ needs. Therefore, my second essay studies securitization of mortality risks in life annuities. Specifically I design a mortality bond to transfer longevity risks inherent in annuities or pension plans to financial markets. By explicitly taking into account the jumps in mortality stochastic processes, my third essay fills a gap in the mortality securitization modeling literature by pricing mortality securities in an incomplete market framework. Using the Survey of Consumer Finances, my fourth essay creates a new financial vulnerability index to examine a household’s life cycle demand for different types of life insurance.

The securitization of terrorism in Indonesia : 2001-2006

Van Damme, Ashley 05 1900 (has links)
This thesis looks at the Indonesian government’s strategy for managing the threat of terrorism between 2001 and 2006. Various socio-political factors such as the importance of Islam in Indonesian society and politics, ongoing democratization and important civil-military reform all contribute to an environment where counterterrorism efforts are both necessary and politically risky. In order to better address the many complexities of the Indonesian case study, this thesis uses a modified securitization theory framework which gives increased weight to the political and social context in which securitization decisions are made. The modified framework disaggregates the decision of an agent to rhetorically securitize an issue from the decisions behind subsequent policy actions, and considers separately the motivations behind each. When applied to the Indonesian case study this modified framework reveals that between 2002 and 2006, President Megawati Soekarnoputri and President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono managed terrorism by employing a combination of securitizing and criminalizing strategies. It additionally reveals that for each president the non-discursive policy action was not solely result of the success or failure of discursive securitization, but was also dependent on the specific political environment each faced.

Essays on Bank Optimal Portfolio Choice under Liquidity Constraint

Kim, Eul Jin 2012 August 1900 (has links)
Long term asset creates more revenue, however it is riskier in a liquidity sense. Our question is: How does a liquidity constrained bank make decisions between profitability and liquidity? We present a computable DSGE model of banks optimal portfolio choices under liquidity constraints. Our theory predicts that liquidation plays an important role in a bank's portfolio model. Even though liquidation is an off-equilibrium phenomenon, banks can have rich loan portfolios due to the possibility of liquidation. Liquidity condition is a key factor in banks portfolio. In a moderate liquidity situation, a bank can lend more profitable longer term loans, however, if a shock in liquidity is expected, then the bank lends more loans in short term. According to the liquidity conditions, the bank can have medium term loans which are different from other previous literature. In addition, we extend our model to the bank's securities business where the bank's debts are largely short term deposit. Our theory predicts that the bank securities business produces a chasm between a real liquidity of economy and market liquidity. Banks can have more liquidity by selling their securitized loans, and as our model already pointed out, a good liquidity condition makes the bank have more profitable but less liquid long term loans. As a consequence, long term loans are accumulated with this securitization, simply because a long term loan gives higher revenue. Any market turbulence can invoke a problem in economy wide liquidity.
