Expectile-Based Capital Allocation

Main Article Content

Khalil Said


This paper focuses on capital allocation using the Euler principle with Expectiles as risk measures. We delve into the allocation composition across various actuarial models, examining the influence of dependence through copulas, and studying the case of comonotonicity. Additionally, we provide expressions for marginal contributions related to some of the models under investigation.
