Applicability of Bayesian Methods for Loss Ratio Estimation
In an earlier paper, we proposed a Bayesian approach towards estimating the Value-at-Risk of an insurance loss ratio, taking into account both the parameter risk and the model risk. In this paper, we apply the approach to real data and evaluate the plausibility of the estimators.
