In this paper, we propose a discrete-time model with dependent classes of business using a time-series approach. Specifically, premiums and claims of all classes are supposed to satisfy a multivariate first-order autoregressive time-series model. A constant interest rate is also included in the model. A Lundberg-type inequality for the ruin probability is deduced. We also give an example with constant premiums and two classes of claims for which an expression as well as an exponential bound for the ruin probability is given. A simulation study is provided to help understanding the model. Copyright © 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
