# A Framework for Measures of Risk under Uncertainty

@article{Fadina2021AFF, title={A Framework for Measures of Risk under Uncertainty}, author={Tolulope Fadina and Yang Liu and Ruodu Wang}, journal={SSRN Electronic Journal}, year={2021} }

A risk analyst assesses potential financial losses based on multiple sources of information. Often, the assessment does not only depend on the specification of the loss random variable, but also various economic scenarios. Motivated by this observation, we design a unified axiomatic framework for risk evaluation principles which quantifies jointly a loss random variable and a set of plausible probabilities. We call such an evaluation principle a generalized risk measure. We present a series of…

Risk Preferences and Their Robust Representation

- Mathematics, Computer ScienceMath. Oper. Res.
- 2013

This work describes the subjective notion of risk by means of a risk order and focuses on the context invariant features of diversification and monotonicity, which allows for a differentiated interpretation depending on the underlying context that is illustrated in different settings.

Quantile-Based Risk Sharing

- 2018

It is shown that, in general, a robust optimal allocation exists if and only if none of the underlying risk measures is a VaR, and several novel advantages of ES over VaR from the perspective of a regulator are revealed.

An Axiomatic Foundation for the Expected Shortfall

- SSRN Electronic Journal
- 2019

In the recent Basel Accords, the Expected Shortfall (ES) replaces the Value-at-Risk (VaR) as the standard risk measure for market risk in the banking sector, making it the most popular risk measure…

Scenario-Based Risk Evaluation

Risk measures such as Expected Shortfall (ES) and Value-at-Risk (VaR) have been prominent in banking regulation and financial risk management. Motivated by practical considerations in the assessment…

Coherent Measures of Risk

In this paper we study both market risks and nonmarket risks, without complete markets assumption, and discuss methods of measurement of these risks. We present and justify a set of four desirable…

Maxmin Expected Utility with Non-Unique Prior

Acts are functions from states of nature into finite-support distributions over a set of 'deterministic outcomes'. We characterize preference relations over acts which have a numerical representation…

Attitude toward imprecise information

- Mathematics, Computer ScienceJ. Econ. Theory
- 2008

An axiomatic model of decision making which incorporates objective but imprecise information and explains how subjective belief varies with information is presented, which identifies an explicit attitude toward imprecision that underlies usual hedging axioms.

Robustness in the Optimization of Risk Measures

- Economics, Mathematics
- 2018

It is discovered that for many simple representative optimization problems, VaR generally leads to non-robust optimizers whereas ES generally leadsto robust ones.
