Nor is the premium; the idea, here, is that the latter is computed as a function of observables only, so that any information it conveys is already included inf(Xi'~) - provided, of course, that the corresponding functional form is flexible enough.

From the data, we observe that the deductible choice does matter for only two deductible levels $250 and $500 and in fact the choice of $500 is done only by about 4% of the overall portfolio, while it is made by nearly 18% of the young drivers. The next figure shows how the choice of the $500 does matter for risk classes higher than 3. We will then concentrate our analysis to these classes.
