The Benktander type II distribution, also called the Benktander distribution of the second kind, is one of two distributions introduced by Gunnar Benktander (1970) to model heavy-tailed losses commonly found in non-life/casualty actuarial science, using various forms of mean excess functions (Benktander & Segerdahl 1960). This distribution is "close" to the Weibull distribution (Kleiber & Kotz 2003).
