  author={Natalia Nolde and Chen Zhou and Mengling Zhou},
The global financial crisis of 2007-2009 highlighted the crucial role systemic risk plays in ensuring stability of financial markets. Accurate assessment of systemic risk would enable regulators to introduce suitable policies to mitigate the risk as well as allow individual institutions to monitor their vulnerability to market movements. One popular measure of systemic risk is the conditional value-at-risk (CoVaR), proposed in Adrian and Brunnermeier (2011). We develop a methodology to estimate… 


Conditional Extremes in Asymmetric Financial Markets
ABSTRACT The global financial crisis of 2007–2009 revealed the great extent to which systemic risk can jeopardize the stability of the entire financial system. An effective methodology to quantify
Systemic Risk Measurement: Multivariate GARCH Estimation of CoVaR
We modify Adrian and Brunnermeier’s (2011) CoVaR, the VaR of the financial system conditional on an institution being in financial distress. We change the definition of financial distress from an
Backtesting Marginal Expected Shortfall and Related Systemic Risk Measures
This paper proposes an original approach for backtesting systemic risk measures. This backtesting approach makes it possible to assess the systemic risk measure forecasts used to identify the
Measuring Systemic Risk
The ability of components of SES to predict emerging systemic risk during the financial crisis of 2007-2009 is demonstrated, in particular, the outcome of stress tests performed by regulators; the decline in equity valuations of large financial firms in the crisis; and the widening of their credit default swap spreads.
Value-at-Risk Prediction: A Comparison of Alternative Strategies
Given the growing need for managing financial risk, risk prediction plays an increasing role in banking and finance. In this study we compare the out-of-sample performance of existing methods and
Backtesting Systemic Risk Forecasts using Multi-Objective Elicitability
Backtesting risk measure forecasts requires identifiability (for model validation) and elicitability (for model comparison). The systemic risk measures CoVaR (conditional value-atrisk), CoES
Elicitability and backtesting: Perspectives for banking regulation
Conditional forecasts of risk measures play an important role in internal risk management of financial institutions as well as in regulatory capital calculations. In order to assess forecasting
On dependence consistency of CoVaR and some other systemic risk measures
This paper compares two alternative notions of Conditional Value-at-Risk (CoVaR) available in the current literature and proves general results that relate the dependence consistency of CoVaR using conditioning on X  ≥ VaR α ( X ) to well established results on concordance ordering of multivariate distributions or their copulas.
Techniques for Verifying the Accuracy of Risk Measurement Models
It does not appear possible for a bank or its supervisor to reliably verify the accuracy of an institution's internal model loss exposure estimates using standard statistical techniques, and the results have implications both for banks that wish to assess the accuracies of their internal risk measurement models as well as for supervisors who must verify the accurate estimate.
