Abstract In this paper, we develop a novel methodology for estimation of risk capital allocation. The methodology is rooted in the theory of risk measures. We work within a general, but tractable class of law-invariant coherent risk measures, with a particular focus on expected shortfall. We introduce the concept of fair capital allocations and provide explicit formulae for fair capital allocations in case when the constituents of the risky portfolio are jointly normally distributed. The main… Expand

Capital allocation techniques are of central importance in portfolio management and risk-based performance measurement. In this paper we propose an axiom system for capital allocation and analyze its… Expand

Allocating Portfolio Economic Capital to Sub-Portfolios

Techniques for Verifying the Accuracy of Risk Measurement Models

- Economics, Computer Science
- 1995

It does not appear possible for a bank or its supervisor to reliably verify the accuracy of an institution's internal model loss exposure estimates using standard statistical techniques, and the results have implications both for banks that wish to assess the accuracies of their internal risk measurement models as well as for supervisors who must verify the accurate estimate.
