While some of the most well-known parametric insurance solutions, including the African Risk Capacity, were designed for regions of the world where underwriting data was scarce, the concept is taking off in developed markets for the precise opposite reason--the abundance of data.
All these methods are parametric. Nonparametric measures for stability based on ranks provide a viable alternative to existing parametric measures based on absolute data.
Furthermore, if the secondary possibility distribution [mathematical expression not reproducible] is a single subinterval of [0, 1], which means if for any [mathematical expression not reproducible] is called a parametric interval-valued fuzzy variable [32].
