A risk pool is one of the forms of risk management mostly practiced by insurance companies. The benefits from risk pooling depend directly on the relative market behavior. This is explained as follows: If we compare two markets and when
We show, through analytical results and computational experiments, that these effects are due to the different operating regimes exhibited by the system under different levels of variability: as the variability is increased, the system switches from the normal operation to the effective and then complete shutdown
On the Relation Between the Benefits of Risk Pooling and the Variability of Demand. The benefits of pooling risks, manifested in inventory management by consolidating multiple random demands in one location, are well known. We also provide bounds on the benefits of the consolidation of demands.
In contrast to the results for the Normal greatest when the demand faced by the individual distribution, Gerchak and He (2003) provide an ex- locations has high variability, one would expect the ample where increased variability of the individual benefits of inventory pooling to increase with the demands reduces the

We show that for the distributions considered, the absolute benefit of risk pooling increases with variability, and the relative benefit stays fairly
the absolute beneﬁt of risk pooling increases with variability, and the relative beneﬁt stays fairly constant, as long as the coefﬁcient of variation of demand stays
By sharing its individual loss experience with other pool members, a captive participating in a risk pool can experience several benefits.
