EC.cont-methods: Risk Contributions to Economic Capital

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also


Calculate contributions to the economic capital on portfolio level for each portfolio position. In case of a simulative model, the risk contributions are calculated as contributions to expected shortfall on a lower loss level τ, such that ES(τ) is as close as possible to EC(α). Furthermore, in case of a simulative model, loss scenarios above a predefined threshold (loss.thr) are analyzed in order to calculate the risk contributions. If loss.thr is too high (depending on value of alpha) the calculation will be not possible.
