Modelling of the financial state of any insurance company requires the knowledge of the distribution of frequency of claims and the distribution of values of claims. The large claims and the average ones need to be considered independently. Rare large claims have significant influence on financial state of any insurance company. Their distribution may differ from the one inferred from the whole empirical sample of claims. We estimate the distribution of large claims by Maximum Likelihood Method by using the Extreme Value Theory.
