Computing value-at-risk and expected shortfall in operational risk
thesisposted on 22.05.2021, 11:47 by Desire Issiaka Bakassa-Traore
Operational Risk has become more popular in the past fifteen years. The Basel committee realized its importance and banks have to allocate more capital charge, yet this is still not enough. With these new rules, banks have put in place new procedures to compute their risk measures and allocate enough capital charge to avoid bankruptcy. The Basel committee under Basel II has proposed different approaches to compute risk measures for Operational Risk, namely the Basic Indicator Approach, the Advanced Measurement Approach and the Standardized Approach. In our research, we will study the case of Loss Distribution Approach, which has been discussed before, and will contribute to the field by using a heavy-tailed distributed severity: g-and-h distributed. Then, we will analyze and test some methods to compute the value-at-risk( VaR) and conditional value-at-risk or expected shortfall (CVaR).
