Non-Linear Methods There are many value-at-risk models for options portfolios which take into account the non-linear response to large movements in underlying risk factors (a useful survey of these methods may be found in Coleman, ). Treating this risk class as internal to interest-rate risk often leads to fair value inaccuracy and under-evaluation of value-at-risk.

No investment decisions should be Value-at- Risk (VaR) is a general measure of risk developed to equate risk across products and to aggregate risk on a portfolio basis.

VaR is defined as the predicted worst-case loss with a specific confidence level (for example, 95%) over a period of time (for example, 1 day). Risk controlling implies controlling sensitivities to risk by taking offsetting positions to the same risk factors.

It aims to capture market risks beyond those Value at Risk (VaR) is the value that is equaled or exceeded the required percentage of times (1, 5, 10).

Historical simulation is a non-parametric approach of estimating VaR, i.e. the returns are not subjected to any functional distribution. Estimate VaR directly from the data without deriving parameters or making assumptions about the entire   point in time.

Value at Risk tries to provide an answer, at least within a reasonable bound. In fact, it is misleading to consider Value at Risk, or VaR as it is widely known, to be an alternative to risk adjusted value and probabilistic approaches.

After all, it borrows liberally from both. However, the wide use of VaR as a tool for risk   The presence of non linear instruments is responsible for the emergence of non Gaussian features in the price changes distribution of realistic portfolios, even for Normally distributed risk factors.

For smaller Another alternative for rapidly calculating value-at-risk for non-linear portfolios is to use a Monte Carlo value-at-risk measure combined with a holdings remapping and variance reduction. Unlike a quadratic value-at-risk measure, this solution entails no compromise on accuracy, and it can be used with any value-at-risk ://   portfolios containing options or other positions with non-linear price behavior.2 We choose several performance criteria to reflect the practices of risk managers who rely on value-at-risk measures for many purposes.

Although important differ-ences emerge across value-at-risk approaches with respect It was the increasing use of trading instruments exhibiting non‐linear characteristics such as options that was the prime mover behind the development and adoption of Value‐at‐Risk (VaR) type methodologies, as traditional risk measures were deemed to be less and less ://.
