Abstract

Este documento discute de manera breve el concepto de VaR (Value at Risk) y ES (Expected Shortfall) para introducir el uso del software estadístico gratuito R y el paquete VaR. Se ilustra paso a paso la estimación del VaR empleando la simulación histórica, un método paramétrico que supone una distribución normal con varianza constante y un métodosemi-paramétrico que modela la cola de la distribución de los retornos usando la distribución generalizada de Pareto. Así mismo, se detalla como calcular el ES y realizar el backtesting al interior de la muestra ("in sample") y por fuera de la muestra ("out of sample"). Los ejemplos se realizan para la TCRM. Este documento está dirigido a estudiantes de maestría en finanzas, maestría en economía y últimos semestres de pregrado en economía. Además por la sencillez del lenguaje, puede ser de utilidad para cualquier estudiante o profesional interesado en calcular las medidas mas empeladas de riesgo de mercado.
