8 and to write them in a slightly dierent way. 8: PG1: Conditionally, given  = &, the Nj ’s (j = 1, 2, . . , n) are independent and Poisson distributed with Poisson parameter & · 0 , where 0 =  = a priori expected claim frequency. PG2:  has a Gamma distribution with E [] = 1 and shape parameter . Remarks: • From E [] = 1 it follows that the scale parameter of the Gamma distribution must be equal to . Note that  = 0  and that Var [] = • Note also that 1 .  F ind = E [ Nj | ] = 0 .

In Bichsel’s work, it is implicitly assumed that the a priori claim number distribution does not depend on the horsepower class, which is of course a simplifying assumption not fully reflecting reality. • Nowadays the taris are more refined and based on many rating factors. However, experience shows that the individual claim experience still remains one of the most significant variables for predicting future claims. But, in calculating the Bayes premium the dierentiation of the tari based on the other explanatory variables has to be taken into account (see [Gis89]).

He conjectured that differences between individual risk profiles were best summarized by dierences in individual numbers of claims, while claim size, because of the very high variability in the amounts involved, was probably of little predictive value. Mathematical Modelling Let Nj be the number of claims made by a particular driver in year j. Its corresponding aggregate claim amount is Xj . 7 (implicit assumption of Bichsel) Given the individual risk profile & of the driver, the following holds for the aggregate claim amount Xj : 22 2 The Bayes Premium E [Xj | = & ] = CE [Nj | = & ] (j = 1, 2, .
