Law-invariant insurance pricing and its limitations

Papers from arXiv.org
We show that a law-invariant pricing functional defined on a general Orlicz space is typically incompatible with frictionless risky assets in the sense that one and only one of the following alternatives can hold: Either every risky payoff has a strictly-positive bid-ask spread or the pricing functional is given by an expectation and, hence, every payoff has zero bid-ask spread. In doing so we extend and unify a variety of "collapse to the mean" results from the literature and highlight the key role played by law invariance in causing the collapse. As a byproduct, we derive a number of applications to law-invariant acceptance sets and risk measures as well as Schur-convex functionals.
