VoseRuinFlag is a function that only returns that part of the VoseRuin function that tells you if the resources are depleted (returns 1) or not (returns 0) before a certain time horizon (Horizon).

  • ClaimInterval - the distribution of time between each impact. Must be a distribution object.

  • Claimsize - the distribution of the size of each impact. Must be a non-negative distribution object.

  • Initial reserve - the funds available at time zero. This should be a value greater than zero.

  • PolicyPrice - the income generated by selling an individual policy. This should be a value greater than zero.

  • PolicySalesRate - the time between each income.

  • Horizon - the time horizon against which to compare whether a ruin event occurs or not.

  • DividendTreshold - (optional) the level of funds above which they are used for dividend.

  • DiscountRate - (optional) the discount rate (per time unit) to be applied to the dividend cashflows. This must be a value greater than or equal to zero.

As this function takes many parameters, we recommend using the Ruin window for performing this calculation to avoid errors.
