We propose a threshold model extending the generalized Pareto distribution for exceedances over a threshold. The threshold is solely determined within the model and is shown to be super-consistent under the maximum product of spacings estimation method. We apply the model to some insurance data and demonstrate the merit of having a full parametric model for the entire data set. Copyright © 2010 Institute of Statistical Science, Academia Sinica.
