Let (ξ1,η1), (ξ2,η2), be independent identically distributed R2-valued random vectors. We prove a strong law of large numbers, a functional central limit theorem and a law of the iterated logarithm for the convergent perpetuities k0bξ1++ξkηk+1 as b1. Under the standard actuarial interpretation, these results correspond to the situation when the actuarial market is close to the customer-friendly scenario of no risk.
