# Abstract

Motivated by the EU Solvency II Directive, we study the one-year ruin probability of an insurer who makes investments and hence faces both insurance and financial risks. Over a time horizon of one year, the insurance risk is quantified as a nonnegative random variable X equal to the aggregate amount of claims, and the financial risk as a d-dimensional random vector $Y$ consisting of stochastic discount factors of the d financial assets invested. To capture both heavy tails and asymptotic dependence of $Y$ in an integrated manner, we assume that $Y$ follows a standard multivariate regular variation (MRV) structure. As main results, we derive exact asymptotic estimates for the one-year ruin probability for the following cases: (i) X and $Y$ are independent with X of Fréchet type; (ii) X and $Y$ are independent with X of Gumbel type; (iii) X and $Y$ jointly possess a standard MRV structure; (iv) X and $Y$ jointly possess a nonstandard MRV structure.
