In this paper, we consider the compound Poisson risk model influenced by an external Markovian environment process, i.e. Markov-modulated compound Poisson model. The explicit Laplace transforms of Gerber–Shiu functions are obtained, while the explicit Gerber–Shiu functions are derived for the K n -family claim size distributions in the two-states case.
