Notes: Sumario: This paperpts the one-step stochastic frotntier approach to investigate the impact of risk management tools of derivatives and reinsurance on cost efficency of U.S. property -liability insurance companies. The stochastic frontier approacha considers both the mean and variance of cost efficency. The sample includes both stock and mutual insurers.
