Control in Organizational and Social-Economic Systems


Combined measures of financial risks, which are convex combinations of known measures VaR and CVar and their analogues for right-hand tails of investment portfolio profitability distribution functions, are considered. Two-stage optimization procedure is developed for estimation of efficiency of proposed measures. Results of numerical experiment are presented.
