Bounded Shortfall and it's Properties

By Suparna Biswas

In financial market, a risk measure is used to determine the amount of capital to be kept in reserve. The purpose of this reserve is to make the risks taken by financial institutions, such as banks and insurance companies, acceptable to the regulator. There are several risk measures available in the literature. In this paper we concentrate more on the disadvantages of Expected Shortfall (ES) which is a popular coherent risk measure. We propose a new risk measure called Bounded Shortfall (BS) which is a comonotonic risk measure. Though it is not a coherent risk measure, we show that it overcomes the disadvantages of ES. Also we show that the variance of BS estimator is less than the ES estimator under certain conditions.
