Fat Tails and Optimal Liability Driven Portfolios

  title={Fat Tails and Optimal Liability Driven Portfolios},
  author={Jan Rosenzweig},
We look at optimal liability-driven portfolios in a family of fat-tailed and extremal risk measures, especially in the context of pension fund and insurance fixed cashflow liability profiles, but also those arising in derivatives books such as delta one books or options books in the presence of stochastic volatilities. In the extremal limit, we recover a new tail risk measure, Extreme Deviation (XD) , an extremal risk measure significantly more sensitive to extremal returns than CVaR. Resulting… 



Liability-Driven Investors

We find large heterogeneity in the investment strategies of liability-driven investors by using data on occupational pension funds. We measure investment strategies through their factor exposures

Power-law Portfolios

Portfolio optimization methods suffer from a catalogue of known problems, mainly due to the facts that pair correlations of asset returns are unstable, and that extremal risk measures such as maximum

Fat Tailed Factors

This work analyzes an alternative based on ICA, where factors are identified based on their non-Gaussianity, instead of their variance, where this portfolio construction significantly reduces portfolio concentration, and the winner-takes-all problem inherent in Kelly portfolios.

Frictionless Asset Allocation with Elliptically Symmetric Distributions of Returns

Frictionless asset allocation is examined for constant absolute risk aversion. The optimal portfolio for a general class of multivariate probability distributions with elliptical symmetry is

Deviation Measures in Risk Analysis and Optimization

General deviation measures, which include standard deviation as a special case but need not be symmetric with respect to ups and downs, are defined and shown to correspond to risk measures in the

The Estimation of Probability of Extreme Events for Small Samples

The most general approach to the study of rare extreme events is based on the extreme value theory. The fundamental General Extreme Value Distribution lies in the basis of this theory serving as the
