Subadditivity is required in connection with aggregation of risks across desks, business units, accounts, or subsidiary companies. The topic of this article may not meet Wikipedia’s general notability guideline.

Conversely, if the incremental risk is zero for all positions, the portfolio is guaranteed to have minimum risk only if the risk measure is subadditive. The third market model assumes that the logarithm of the return, or, log-return, of any risk factor typically follows a normal distribution. The Marginal VaR of a position with respect to a portfolio can be thought of hpmorgan the amount of risk that the position jpmorgam adding to the portfolio.

That is, the sum of the incremental risks of the positions in a portfolio equals the total risk of the portfolio. Nassim Taleb in his book The Black Swan wrote:. This article has multiple issues.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Not to be confused with risk metricthe abstract concept quantified by risk measures. VaR is a downside risk measure, meaning creditmetrifs it typically focuses on losses.

In other words, the risk of the sum of subportfolios is smaller than or equal to the sum of their individual risks. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.

The giant firm J. The risk factors are represented by time series of prices or levels of stocks, currencies, commodities, and interest rates.


The RiskMetrics variance model also known as exponential smoother was first established inwhen Sir Dennis Weatherstonethe new chairman of J. While comparatively easy to calculate, standard deviation is not an ideal risk measure since it penalizes profits as well as losses. Nearly four years later inJ. Jpmoran are various ways to quantify the error of some estimates.


If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be mergedredirectedor deleted. RiskMetrics assumes that the market is driven by risk factors with observable covariance. Actuarial science Financial risk modeling. Morgan launched the RiskMetrics methodology to the marketplacemaking the substantive research and analysis that satisfied Jlmorgan Dennis Weatherstone’s request freely available to all market participants.

The first widely used portfolio risk measure was the standard deviation of portfolio value, as described by Harry Markowitz. This property has important applications in the allocation of risk to different units, where the goal is to keep the sum of the risks equal to the total risk.

RiskMetrics – Wikipedia

Morgan as RiskMetrics Group with 23 founding employees. It also suffers from simulation error, as the number of simulations is limited by the historical period typically between and business days.

Jpmoorgan first is very similar to the mean-covariance approach of Markowitz. A portfolio with minimum risk will have incremental risk equal to zero for all positions. The market model must be sufficiently specified so that the portfolio can be revalued using information from the market model.

Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. This method has the advantage of simplicity, but as a model, it is slow to adapt to changing market conditions.

The RiskMetrics technical document was revised in This property is important when different cfeditmetrics units calculate their risks independently and we want to get an idea of the total risk involved. Incremental statistics also have applications to portfolio optimization.


The portfolio itself is assumed to be some linear combination of these instruments. The second market model assumes that the market only has finitely many creditmetricz changes, drawn from a risk factor return sample of a defined historical period.

By generating future scenarios for each risk factor, we can infer changes in portfolio value and reprice the portfolio for different “states of the world”. Incremental risk jp,organ provide information regarding the sensitivity of portfolio risk to changes in the position holding sizes in the portfolio. This collection of profit loss scenarios provides a sampling of the profit loss distribution from which one can compute the risk measures of choice.

Please help to establish notability by citing reliable secondary sources that are independent of the topic and provide significant coverage of it beyond a mere trivial mention. A coherent risk measure satisfies the following four properties:. Articles needing additional references from June All articles needing additional references Articles with topics of unclear notability from April All articles with topics of unclear notability Articles with multiple maintenance issues Use dmy dates from November Typically one performs a historical simulation by sampling from past day-on-day risk factor changes, and applying them to the current level of the risk factors to obtain risk factor price scenarios.

Volatility measures the uncertainty in the return of an asset, taken in isolation. Cited in Nassim Taleb Sep 10, If from the imprecise estimate we cannot get a good understanding what the true value could be, then the estimate is virtually worthless.
