Some Remarks on the Value-at-Risk and the Conditional Value-at-Risk
The value-at-risk (VaR) and the conditional value-at-risk (CVaR) are two commonly used risk measures. We state some of their properties and make a comparison. Moreover, the structure of the portfolio optimization problem using the VaR and CVaR objective is studied.
