# Hellinger distance to normal distribution as market invariant

@inproceedings{Mesropyan2022HellingerDT, title={Hellinger distance to normal distribution as market invariant}, author={Mesrop T. Mesropyan and V. G. Bardakhchyan}, year={2022} }

Main purpose of distance based portfolio constructions is in portfolio imitation. Here we construct portfolio based on Hellinger’s distance from normal distribution. We empirically found that minimum of this distance drastically varies from market to market. Thus we suppose that it may be regarded as a form of market invariant, in a sense of helpful tool for market segmentation. We analyze its sensitivity. Though mean sensitivity was small it showed extreme sensitivity in some cases.

### Sensitivity of portfolio VaR and CVaR to portfolio return characteristics

- EconomicsAnn. Oper. Res.
- 2013

This work considers the problem of improving marginally portfolio VaR and CVaR through a marginal change in the portfolio return characteristics and studies the relative significance of standard deviation, mean, tail thickness, and skewness in a parametric setting assuming a Student’s t or a stable distribution for portfolio returns.
