Paper Abstract We analyze the insurer risk under the compound Poisson risk process perturbed by a Wiener process with infinite time horizon. In the first part of this article, we consider the capital required to have fixed probability of ruin as a measure of risk and then a coherent extension of it, analogous to the tail value at risk. We show how both measures of risk can be efficiently computed by the saddlepoint approximation. We also show how to compute the stabilities of these measures of risk with respect to variations of probability of ruin. In the second part of this article, we are interested in the computation of the probability of ruin due to claim and the probability of ruin due to oscillation. We suggest a computational method based on upper and lower bounds of the probability of ruin and we compare it to the saddlepoint and to the Fast Fourier transform methods. This alternative method can be used to evaluate the proposed measures of risk and their stabilities with heavy-tailed individual losses, where the saddlepoint approximation cannot be used. The numerical accuracy of all proposed methods is very high and therefore these measures of risk can be reliably used in actuarial risk analysis.
