Measuring non-exchangeable tail dependence using tail copulas

  title={Measuring non-exchangeable tail dependence using tail copulas},
  author={Takaaki Koike and Shogo Kato and Marius Hofert},
Abstract Quantifying tail dependence is an important issue in insurance and risk management. The prevalent tail dependence coefficient (TDC), however, is known to underestimate the degree of tail dependence and it fails to capture non-exchangeable tail dependence since the TDC evaluates the limiting tail probability only along the main diagonal. To overcome these issues, two novel tail dependence measures called the maximal tail concordance measure (MTCM) and the average tail concordance…

Tail dependence and heavy tailedness in extreme risks
Non‐parametric Estimation of Tail Dependence
This paper embeds tail dependence into the concept of tail copulae which describes the dependence structure in the tail of multivariate distributions but works more generally.
Tail distribution and dependence measures
This paper will study a conditional copula, which is the copula of the distribution (X,Y), given X and Y both higher, or lower, than a given threshold (defined as a quantile, for a given risk level), and define a functional dependence measure, based on Spearman’s rho, call tail rank correlation, which could be seen as a measure of dependence in the tails of the distributions.

Detecting Structural Differences in Tail Dependence of Financial Time Series
ABSTRACT An accurate assessment of tail inequalities and tail asymmetries of financial returns is key for risk management and portfolio allocation. We propose a new test procedure for detecting the
Tail dependence functions and vine copulas
Tail Behaviour of Copulas
This chapter presents the notions related to the tail expansion – leading parts, tail dependence functions and limiting invariant measures, and possible applications of the notion of tail expansions to quantitative finance, especially to risk measurement.
Multiplier bootstrap of tail copulas with applications
This work proves weak convergence of the empirical tail copula process under nonrestrictive smoothness assumptions that are satisfied for many commonly used models and is able to solve the problem of estimating lower and upper tail copulas and prove consistency.
A Statistical Methodology for Assessing the Maximal Strength of Tail Dependence
Several diagonal-based tail dependence indices have been suggested in the literature to quantify tail dependence. They have well-developed statistical inference theories but tend to underestimate
Multivariate Tail Coefficients: Properties and Estimation
Practical use of the tail measurements is demonstrated in a data analysis with a focus on dependencies between stocks that are part of the EURO STOXX 50 market index.
