A robust confidence interval of historical Value-at-Risk for small sample

Abstract : Finiteness of sample, as one major sources of uncertainty, has been ignored by the regulators and risk managers domains such as portfolio management, credit risk modelling and finance (or insurance) regulatory capital calculations. To capture this uncertainty, we provide a robust confidence interval (CI) of historical Value-at-Risk (hVaR) for different length of sample. We compute this CI from a saddlepoint approximation of the distribution of hVaR using a bisection search approach. We also suggest a Spectral Stress Value-at-Risk measure based on the CI, as an alternative risk measure for both financial and insurance industries. Finally we perform a stress testing application for the SSVaR.
