Abstract. The recent years have witnessed significant advances in risk management. Motivated by regulators and competitive pressures, financial institutions have adopted Value-at-Risk (VAR) as a methodology for measuring risks. The coherent risk measure, Conditional Value-at-Risk (CVaR) which is also call Expected Shortfall, is getting popular because of exceptional mathematical and numerical properties. The purpose of this talk is to present the latest developments in the management of financial risks. The talk is focused on challenging issues related to optimization and integration of Market and Credit risks. We emphasize numerical-technological aspects of Risk Management. In particular, we cover recent developments in portfolio optimization with VaR, CVaR, Default Probability, and Drawdown functions. We demonstrate several case studies conducted with Portfolio Safeguard by We discuss optimal allocation strategies for a portfolio of Hedge Funds and risk management strategies for AOrDa portfolios (download flyer).
