Estimates the ES of a portfolio assuming extreme losses are Frechet distributed, for specified confidence level and a given holding period.

`mu` |
Location parameter for daily L/P |

`sigma` |
Scale parameter for daily L/P |

`tail.index` |
Tail index |

`n` |
Block size from which maxima are drawn |

`cl` |
Confidence level |

`hp` |
Holding period |

Note that the long-right-hand tail is fitted to losses, not profits.

Estimated ES. If cl and hp are scalars, it returns scalar VaR. If cl is vector and hp is a scalar, or viceversa, returns vector of VaRs. If both cl and hp are vectors, returns a matrix of VaRs.
