Extreme Value Theory for Tail-Related Risk Measures
AbstractMany fields of modern science and engineering have to deal with events which are rare but have significant consequences. Extreme value theory is considered to provide the basis for the statistical modeling of such extremes. The potential of extreme value theory applied to financial problems has only been recognized recently. This paper aims at introducing the fundamentals of extreme value theory as well as practical aspects for estimating and assessing statistical models for tail-related risk measures.
