Can the Poisson be used to model the distribution of the number of MODELS FOR THE CLAIM NUMBER DISTRIBUTION 25 claims in a portfolio? Let us assume a homogeneous portfolio, where each policyholder's claim number has a Poisson distribution with the same parameter A.. If this model withstands statistical testing, accidents in a portfolio can be assumed to occur randomly. In that case, there is no justification whatsoever to introduce a BMS. All policyholders of the same tariff class should pay the same premium, independently of their past claims behavior.

Note. The notations presented in this chapter, universally used by BMS researchers, were introduced by Loimaranta (1972) in a path-breaking paper. Other early treatment of BMS using Markov chains include Molnar and Rockwell (1966).

The Poisson-inverse Gaussian is thus more skewed than the negative binomial and has a somewhat thicker right tail. Table 3-8 shows that, in practice, differences are insignificant. The skewness coefficient cannot be used as a tie-breaker between the negative binomial and the Poisson-inverse Gaussian. Table 3-8. 4534 Conclusion.
