Using the Malliavin calculus on Poisson space we compute the probability density of risk reserve processes and the sensitivities of probabilities of ruin at a given date for an insurance portfolio under interest force. We follow a method initiated in Fournie et al. Finance and Stochastics 3(4) 391-412, 1999, for continuous financial markets. The simulation graphs provided show that this method is computationally more efficient than the classical finite-difference Monte-Carlo approximation of derivatives.
