We consider the classical risk model and carry out a sensitivity and robustness analysis of finitetime ruin probabilities. We provide algorithms to compute the related influence functions. We also prove the weak convergence of a sequence of empirical finitetime ruin probabilities starting from zero initial reserve toward a Gaussian random variable. We define the concepts of reliable finitetime ruin probability as a ValueatRisk of the estimator of the finitetime ruin probability. To control this robust risk measure, an additional initial reserve is needed and called Estimation Risk Solvency Margin (ERSM). We apply our results to show how portfolio experience could be rewarded by cutoffs in solvency capital requirements. An application to catastrophe contamination and numerical examples are also developed.
