Example text

At correlation ρ, the total standard deviation is v(t ) = (D 2 + 2tdDρ + t 2 d 2 )1/2 . Then v (0) = dρ. We can assume d = 1 by scaling. Obviously, this analysis only applies to “small” incremental positions (see Garman, 1996). 2. Economics of Market Risk 25 internal pricing of risk that: (1) appropriately compensate for the different opportunities available to different profit centers, (2) exploit diversification opportunities across profit centers, and (3) account for the risk aversion of managers and traders.

For example, J. P. Morgan has disclosed its daily VaR at the 95% level. Before being acquired by Deutsche Bank, Bankers Trust disclosed statistics based on its daily VaR at the 99% level. The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) accord allows a version of VaR to be used in the formula for the minimal capital that banks maintain as backing for their traded portfolios of financial instruments. The BIS has set a confidence level of 99% and a time horizon of 10 days for this purpose. The capital charge for users of a proprietary model is the higher of the previous day’s VaR and three times the average daily VaR over the preceding 60 business days.

Before exploring some economic motives for managing the risk of extreme loss in more depth, it is instructive to expand briefly on what we mean by this risk. We let Pt denote the market value of a portfolio held by a firm (or a particular profit center) at date t . The probability distribution of the 14 2. 1 for various s. For a given time horizon, say 1 day, the bell-shaped curve represents the likelihood of various potential changes in market value, or profit and loss (P&L). ) Financial risk, as typically discussed in the context of portfolio management, is captured by the shape of this P&L distribution.
