Title: Value-at-risk bounds with variance constraints / Carole Bernard, Ludger Rüschendorf, Steven VanduffelAuthor: Bernard, Carole
Physical description: 37 p.Notes: Sumario: We study bounds on the Value-at-Risk (VaR) of a portfolio when besides the marginal distributions of the components its variance is also known, a situation that is of considerable interest in risk management. We discuss when the bounds are sharp (attainable) and also point out a new connection between the study of VaR bounds and the convex ordering of aggregate risk. This connection leads to the construction of an algorithm, called Extended Rearrangement Algorithm (ERA), that makes it possible to approximate sharp VaR bounds. We test the stability and the quality of the algorithm in several numerical examples. We apply the results to the case of credit risk portfoloio models and verify that adding the variance constraint gives rise to significantly tighter bounds in all situations of interest.Related records: En: The Journal of risk and insurance. - Nueva York : The American Risk and Insurance Association, 1964- = ISSN 0022-4367. - 04/09/2017 Volumen 84 Número 3 - septiembre 2017 , p. 923-959Materia / lugar / evento: Valores límite Gerencia de riesgos Otros autores: Rüschendorf, Ludger
