    Abstract : Hedge funds use a variety of different financial instruments in order to try to achieve over-average returns without taking on excessive risk - options being one of the most common of these instruments. Basket options is a type of option that is written on several underlying assets that can be used to hedge risky positions. READ MORE

  2. 7. Value at Risk Estimation with Generative Adversarial Networks

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : David Tobjörk; [2021]
    Keywords : generative adversarial networks value at risk finance machine learning neural networks; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Risk is of large importance for financial institutions and there are many different measures that can be used. A popular one is value at risk (VaR), which is the maximum likely loss for a portfolio of financial assets. Different methods of estimating it has been suggested, one often described is the variance-covariance method. READ MORE

  4. 9. Accuracy of Risk Measures For Black Swan Events

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Viktor Barry; [2021]
    Keywords : Black swans; value at risk; conditional value at risk; monte carlo simulation; financial mathematics; risk analysis; financial risk; Black Swan; value at risk; conditional value at risk; monte carlo-simulering; finansiell matematik; riskanalys; finansiell risk;

    Abstract : This project aims to analyze the risk measures Value-at-Risk and Conditional-Value-at-Risk for three stock portfolios with the purpose of evaluating each method's accuracy in modelling Black Swan events. This is achieved by utilizing a parametric approach in the form of a modified (C)VaR with a Cornish-Fisher expansion, a historic approach with a time series spanning ten years and a Markov Monte Carlo simulation modeled with a Brownian motion.
