The concept discussed in my presentation is value-at-risk, a risk measure mostly studied for portfolio optimization in mathematical distribution. In this, we have discussed how it depends on the different statistical distribution and has compared the results.

    Overview of the first phase work O We described VaR as the quantile of the projected distribution of losses and gains of an investment over a target horizon. O Algebraic properties of VaR and its shortcomings were discussed. Also, how Conditional Value-at-Risk addresses the defects of VaR. O An approach to optimizing a portfolio which focuses on minimizing conditional value-at-risk (CVaR) rather than minimizing value-at-risk (VaR) 3/27 Prabhat Kumar Pankaj 1MS13102 VaR Under Different Statistical Distribution

    Introduction Value-at-Risk (VaR) is defined as the worst expected loss over a given period at a specified confidence level. Based on how the financial return distribution is modelled, methodology of estimating VaR can be classified into two groups: o the parametric VaR o non-parametric VaR. The statistical distribution that is commonly assumed in parametric VaR is the Normal distribution. A leptokurtic distribution has a higher peak and heavier tails than the Normal distribution. The quality of VaR is relying on how well the statistical distribution captures the leptokurtic behaviour of the financial 4/27 returns.

    Empirical Study 0 The empirical study is done using four stocks, FTSE/JSE TOP40 (J200) index and the S & P 500 index. The four shares are: O Standard Bank (SBK) O African Bank (ABL) O Merafe Resource (MRF) O and Anglo American (AGL) and are listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. o Daily closing prices for the equity stocks and indexes and their daily log returns were obtained. 5/27 Prabhat Kumar Pankaj 1MS13102 VaR Under Different Statistical Distribution

    Empirical Study o The sample period has been split into three sub-samples, that is: O Pre-crisis (from 1991 January-December 2007), O Crisis period (from January 2008-December 2009), O Post-crisis (from January 2010-July 2014).

    Maximum Likelihood Estimation We need to fit the NIG, Skew t, Normal and t—distribution model to the empirical data. Maximum likelihood estimation is used to find the parameters of the distribution. Let (E, be a statistical model associated with a sample of i.i.d. r.v. Xl , ...,Xn. Assume that there exists 9* G @ such that Xl rx-I : 9* is the true parameter. Statisticians goal: given Xl , ...,Xn, find an estimator 9 such that IPO is close to P for the true parameter 9 11/27 Prabhat Kumar Pankaj 1MS13102 VaR Under Different Statistical Distribution

    Maximum Likelihood Estimation o To find the parameters close to true parameter, we maximize the likelihood function. 0 11} | pe (Xi) is the likelihood function. This is Obtained by minimizing the distance between the two distribution. o This is the maximum likelihood principle. 12/27 Prabhat Kumar Pankaj 1MS13102 VaR Under Different Statistical Distribution

    Discussions o In this study we modelled selected equity stocks, the FTSE/JSE TOP40 and S & P 500 indices using the NIG, t-distribution, Skew t and Normal distribution. Each of these statistical distributions captures different features of the financial returns. o The regulatory backtesting procedure is performed over the last 250 trading days with the 99% oneday VaR compared to the observed daily profits and losses over the period. o The NIG, Skew t and t-distribution fitted the financial returns better both in the center and tails as compared to the classic Normal distribution, with the Skew t and t-distribution showing heavier tails then the NIG semi-heavy tails. 0 we calculated VaR under the NIG, Normal, Skew t and t-distribution assumptions. The results obtained showed that the VaR calculated under the three distributions outperformed those 24/27 under the Normal distribution.

    ACKNOWLEDGEMENT First and foremost, I want to express my unending gratitude to the Almighty. With people having to face so much anguish in this World, I am blessed to be endowed with an enriching environment where I can pursue my interests. Next, I am indebted to Dr. M. P. Rajan for providing me an opportunity to work under his guidance. His valuable guidance whenever I needed it is what helped me to work at my own pace and his support during the project was second to none. I sincerely acknowledge his trust in me and patience with me. I also wish to mention the support from my friends: Prakhar Swarup (School of Chemistry), Ravi Kant (School of Physics) and Anubhab Dey (School of Physics). Last but not the least, I am obliged towards School of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Thiruvananthapuram (IISER- TVM) for all the resources 1 used and all the knowledge I gained. My upcoming career would definitely benefit lea s and bounds from this ro•ect. 26/27 Prabhat Kumar Pankaj 1MS13102 VaR Under Different Statistical Distribution
