Starting with a time-0 coherent risk measure defined for " value processes " , we define, also at intermediate times, a risk measurement process. Two other constructions of such measurement processes are given in terms of sets of test probabilities. These constructions are identical and related to the former construction when the sets fulfill a stability(More)
We explain why and how to deal with the definition, acceptability, computation and management of risk in a genuinely multitemporal way. Coherence axioms provide a representation of a risk-adjusted valuation. Some special cases of practical interest allowing for easy recursive computations are presented. The multiperiod extension of Tail VaR is discussed.(More)
