Numerical Methods for Value-at-Risk

Portfolios of financial assets are exposed to many types of risks, future events that if they

occurred would result in financial losses. The purpose of risk management is to quantify

and control these dangers. Value-at-risk (VaR) is a measure of the market risk, the chance

of a loss in a company’s portfolio caused by unfavorable changes in prices and rates.

Minimum risk management standards for financial institutions are set and enforced by national

regulators. The Basel Accord [Bas88], the market risk amendment [Bas96a, Bas96b], and

the recent update [Bas88] contain the international guidelines implemented by the national

agencies.1 Value-at-risk has become the industry standard for quantifying market risk, partly

because of its intuitive appeal and, more importantly, because it is endorsed in the Basel

Accord.

For a given portfolio, value-at-risk is defined as the maximum loss forecast over a

specified holding period and within a given confidence level (see Figure 4.1). In other words,

it is a percentile of the distribution for changes in portfolio value. If

is the change in

portfolio value during the holding period, then value-at-risk is the solution to a nonlinear

equation:

P

≤ −VaR = 1 −

(4.1)

where is the confidence level. Another interpretation is that in the long term we expect

losses exceeding value-at-risk with frequency 1− . For = 99%, we expect losses exceeding

value-at-risk 1 out of every 100 days. Regulators require value-at-risk to be computed daily

with a confidence level of 99% and for a holding period of 10 days. However, since the

rules allow for value-at-risk for 1 day to be scaled to approximate the risk for 10 days, we

choose to consider daily holding periods in our examples. There are many review papers

about value-at-risk simulation: Stambaugh [Sta96] gives a high-level introduction; for more

in-depth, general, algorithmic, and mathematical discussions, we have a personal preference

for [Mor96a, Hul00, DP97].2

In financial markets, risk is caused by uncertainty about the value of an investment in

the future. The value of a portfolio is a function of a set of risk factors. Risk factor is the

generic term for a financial variable related to market prices of selected reference securities,

for example, equity indices, interest rates, foreign exchange rates, and commodity futures

prices. Market risk is the risk that the value of a portfolio declines as a consequence of

changes in the risk-factor values. Therefore, to model market risk we need to understand how

risk factors evolve over time.

Consistently with the hypothesis of absence of arbitrage, we will assume that the changes

in risk factors are random. Although historical data is of limited use to predict changes in risk

factors, it can be used to estimate statistical models to model risk factors and their correlations.

In our examples, we use stocks as elementary risk factors, although the methodology applies

to a wide range of financial instruments.

A simple formula for value-at-risk can be obtained in the case where an n × 1 vector

of relative changes R in the market risk factors is a multivariate normal random variable

with mean vector and covariance matrix C, and if one assumes that the change in portfolio value can be approximated by an affine function of the relative changes in the risk

factors:

Throughout this chapter we shall use superscript T to denote the transpose. Note: We are

using

to denote the change in portfolio, i.e.,

= t − 0 for a time lapse t, whereas

in the dot product is the vector of sensitivities w.r.t. the returns (i.e., the delta Greeks of

the portfolio), as defined later.
