Let X t t an arbitrary strategy ˜b after time Tz . Denote the corresponding characteristics by a tilde sign. Then ˜ T ∧τ )] = δ˜b (2z − x)IIP[Tz < τ˜b ] ≥ δ˜b (2z − x)IIP[Tz < τ b ] . δ˜b (z) = IIE[δ˜b (X z Because δ b (x) = δ b (z)IIP[Tz < τ b ], there is a strategy such that IIP[Tz < τ b ] is arbitrarily close to 1. Because the strategy ˜b is arbitrary, we conclude that δ(2z − x) = δ(z) = δ(x). Thus, δ(z) would be constant for all z ≥ x. Because δ(z) → 1 as z → ∞, this is only possible if δ(x) = 1.

Suppose t+1 that t 1I2bs ≥(1−η/θ) ds < (1 − η/θ)/4. Then t+1 3 + η/θ θ − η (θ − η)(3θ − η) 1 − η/θ η− =− 4 4 2 8θ θ−η <− . 4 θbs − (θ − η) ds ≤ t b − Xtb ≤ −(θ − η)/4 with strictly positive probability. If instead Thus, Xt+1 t+1 t+1 we have t 1I2bs ≥(1−η/θ) ds ≥ (1 − η/θ)/4, then t b2s ds ≥ (1 − η/θ)2 /8. s T Let T = inf{s ≥ t : t b2v dv > (1 − η/θ)2 /8}. Then t σbv dWv is normally distributed with mean value 0 and variance σ 2 (1 − η/θ)2 /8. In particular, sups∈(t,t+1) {Xsb − Xtb } ≤ −(θ − η)/4 holds with strictly positive probability also on this set.

7), the verification theorem is easy to prove. 5. 8). 9) is an optimal reinsurance strategy. 6. It is not surprising that ψ(x) is an exponential function and that the optimal strategy is constant. Starting with initial capital x1 + x2 , ruin can occur only if first the surplus x1 is reached. Due to the strong Markov property, the ruin probability at the point where x1 is reached is ψ(x1 ). Before x1 is reached, it is therefore optimal to use a strategy that minimises the probability of reaching x1 .
