Insurance: Mathematics and Economics, 2015, vol. 62, issue C, 215-226

Abstract: This paper aims to model a profit-seeking firm in a regulated competitive insurance market in an epoch when future annual market prices become poorly predictable. It occurs when more and more non-antagonistic contenders cut their prices seeking for individual success. It aggravates randomness pertaining to insurance casualties. This paper deals with multi-year control strategy of a profit-seeking insurer aiming in this epoch to comply each year with legal solvency requirements, to keep its portfolio size more or less stable, and to keep business attractive for investments.
