Sample text

Since payments are often made prior to the delivery of the plane, a number of clauses are added in the contract to manage the risks sustained by each of the parties if any of the parties were to deviate from the contract stated tenus. Similarly, a manufacturer can enter into binding bi-Iateral agreements with a supplier, by which agreed (contracted) exchange tenns are used as a substitute for the free market mechanism. This can involve future contractual prices, delivery rates at specific times (to reduce inventory holding costs) and of course a set of clauses intended to protect each party against possible failures by the other in fulfilling the tenus of the contract.

This phenomenon is called diversification (of unsystematic risk). , make it possible for investors, through risk aggregation, to share their risk in an actuarial sense. In this sense, banks contribute to actuarial risk sharing by promoting investment opportunities (and lending them money) and recruiting investors. Though actuarial risk may seem similar to portfolio risk because they both involve some risk reduction, there is a fme distinction between the two. Commercial banks, by contrast with investment banks, assume three primary roles in fmancial markets.

For example, some say that in insurance "you get what you give". In this sense, the premium payments collected from an insured should equal what he has claimed plus some small amounts to cover administrative expenses. In this case, let n be a loading factor and let Jl be the mean claim rate of an insured. In this case, the premium is determined by P == (1 + n)Jl which expresses as well the cost of risk sustained by the insurer. These issues are in general much more complex because the insurer benefits of risk aggregation over many insured (which is equivalent to a portfolio risk diversification) as well gains arising from investments of the premiums received.
