This international peer-reviewed journal publishes a broad range of original research papers which aim to further develop understanding of financial risk management. As the only publication devoted exclusively to theoretical and empirical studies in financial risk management, The Journal of Risk promotes far-reaching research on the latest innovations in this field, with particular focus on the measurement, management and analysis of financial risk.
The Journal of Risk is particularly interested in papers on the following topics:
- Risk management regulations and their implications
- Risk capital allocation and risk budgeting
- Efficient evaluation of risk measures under increasingly complex and realistic model assumptions
- Impact of risk measurement on portfolio allocation
- Theoretical development of alternative risk measures
- Hedging (linear and non-linear) under alternative risk measures
- Financial market model risk
- Estimation of volatility and unanticipated jumps
- Capital allocation
The dual problem of pricing to acceptability is formulated as a disciplined convex program solvable by the software CVXOPT.
A fuzzy data envelopment analysis model for evaluating the efficiency of socially responsible and conventional mutual funds
The authors of this paper use data envelopment analysis (DEA) to assess the relative efficiency of a sample of US equity mutual funds.
This paper explores how a defined-contribution pension fund optimally distributes wealth between a defaultable bond, a stock and a bank account, given that a salary is a stochastic process.
This paper presents a method to estimate and decompose a portfolio’s risk along independent factors.
The author of this paper presents a general and path-consistent wrong-way risk (WWR) model that does not require simulation of credit and market variables simultaneously.
This paper investigates the extent to which the nonstationarity of financial time series affects both the estimation and the modeling of empirical copulas.
This paper shows how redemption risks of mutual funds can be modeled using the peaks-over-threshold approach from extreme value theory.
The valuation of contingent convertible catastrophe debt under simple solvency and liquidity covenants
This paper studies a new write-off debt instrument (called CoCoCAT bond) whose writeoff is triggered by solvency and event-driven covenants.
This paper addresses the issue of model selection risk by examining whether a model’s past performance in forecasting expected returns provides an indication of its future forecasting performance.
This paper studies the impact of model risk on EVT methods when determining the value-at-risk and expected shortfall.
This paper studies the use of finite difference methods for estimating risk contributions.
The authors of this paper simulate realistic total bank return distributions by means of a top-down copula approach for different parameter settings.
The authors of this paper formalize a methodology to manage short-term FX risk.
Evaluating the performance of the skewed distributions to forecast value-at-risk in the global financial crisis
This paper models the tail behavior of daily returns and forecasting VaR in order to evaluate the performance of several skewed and symmetric distributions.
This paper derives a closed-form version of a model with a trend-stationary, stochastic volatility exchange rate, using both a linear and quadratic trend.
In order to separate short-term noise from long-term trends, this paper decomposes financial return series into their time and frequency domains.
This paper looks for optimal explicit constructions and empirical tests in regards to pricing and hedging derivatives with coherent risk measures.
This paper considers the portfolio optimization problem, with conditional value-at-risk as the objective.
This paper investigates a practical and fast analytic framework for portfolio modeling and tail risk allocation using Hermite polynomials.
This paper discusses the application of orthogonal polynomials to the estimation of probability density functions.
Basel II versus III: a comparative assessment of minimum capital requirements for internal model approaches
This paper provides a comparative assessment of the minimum capital requirement (MCR) in three prominent versions of the Basel regulatory framework.
The authors of this paper propose to quantify the effectiveness of a capital estimation procedure via the notions of residual estimation risk and estimated capital risk.
This paper characterizes continuous-time risk-taking.
This paper provides a theoretical justification as to why investment firms typically set less strict stop-out rules for PMs with higher Sharpe ratios.
