Presented by:

Date:

Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 2
Abstract: 
Banks and insurance companies typically use distribution-based risk measures for the evaluation of their downside risks. The talk reviews the theory of monetary risk measures including their statistical properties. Recently, some authors emphasized the significance of the elicitability of risk measures, a notion closely related to Huber's M-estimators and quantile regression. We characterize elicitable distribution-based risk measures and analyze the notion of generalized Hampel-robustness.
