\def\cF{\mathcal{F}} We provide a dual characterisation of the weak$^*$-closure of a finite sum of cones in $L^\infty$ adapted to a discrete time filtration $\cF_t$: the $t^{th}$ cone in the sum contains bounded random variables that are $\cF_t$-measurable. Hence we obtain a generalisation of F. Delbaen's m-stability condition [{\it The structure of m-stable sets and in particular of the set of risk neutral measures}, in: In Memoriam Paul-Andr{\'e} Meyer, Springer, Berlin et al. (2006) 215--258] for the problem of reserving in a collection of num\'eraires {\bf V}, called {\bf V}-m-stability, provided these cones arise from acceptance sets of a dynamic coherent measure of risk [see P. Artzner, F. Delbaen, J.-M. Eber, and D. Heath: {\it Thinking coherently}, Risk 10 (1997) 68--71; {\it Coherent measures of risk}, Math. Finance 9(3) (1999) 203--228]. We also prove that {\bf V}-m-stability is equivalent to time-consistency when reserving in portfolios of {\bf V}, which is of particular interest to insurers.

Keywords: Coherent risk measures, m-stability, time-consistency, Fatou property, reserving, hedging, representation, pricing mechanism, average value at risk.
