Abstract:

We will discuss measures to describe financial risk: credit risk, operational risk, insurance risk among others. In particular, we will introduce Value-At-Risk and Expected Shortfall. We will calculate risk measures for some simple probabilistic models. Next, we will address the issue of estimation of risk measures: parametric, semi-parametric and non-parametric methods will be introduced.
