En este documento continuamos en la discusión del VaR (Value at Risk) como medida de riesgo de mercado de los activos financieros. Ilustramos de manera práctica y detallada la estimación del VaR empleando la estimación de la varianza abandonando el supuesto de volatilidad constante. Emplearemos por lo tanto tres aproximaciones distintas: La estimación de la varianza móvil, estimación mediante medias móviles con ponderación exponencial (EWMA) y la estimación mediante modelos de la familia GARCH. Posteriormente realizamos pruebas de backtesting. Los ejemplos se realizan para la TCRM, los cálculos son realizados mediante el software gratuito R y los códigos de programación son también reportados. 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.
