Principal-Agent problem in insurance: from discrete-to continuous-time.

Abstract: In this talk we present a contracting problem between an insurance buyer and the seller, subject to prevention efforts in the form of self-insurance and self-protection. We start with a static formulation, corresponding to an optimization problem with variational inequality constraint, and extend the main properties of the optimal contract to the continuous-time formulation, corresponding to a stochastic control problem in weak form under non-singular measures.
