Seminar “Modern Statistics in Financial Risks and Capital Risk Allocation”


Modern Statistics in Financial Risks and Capital Risk Allocation

Speaker: Dr. Hung T. Nguyen, New Mexico State University (USA)

and Chiang Mai University (Thailand)

Date:              Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Time:             13:30 – 15:30

Venue:            A2.609, IU main campus


Abstract: We present several related modern statistics surrounding the basic concept
of financial risks, as well as an example of risk management using
coalitional game theory:
(a) These are quantile-based risk measures, quantile (robust) regression,
copulas for risk dependence, heavy-tailed distribution
(b) We illustrate a new approach to capital risk allocation using game
