Portfolio Allocation and Alternative Structures of the Standard Reinsurance Agreement

This paper analyzes effects of hypothetical changes in the Standard Reinsurance Agreement (SRA) on rates of return of private insurance companies participating in delivery of crop insurance. A computer simulation program is used to model companies'’ returns under the current and alternative SRA structures. A simple heuristic rule is used in order to simulate companies' behavior under counterfactual assumptions about the SRA structures.
