In the last two decades, thanks to the progress in information technology, large (in the cross-section) and ultra-high-frequency financial datasets have become increasingly available to the academic community. The rich dependence structure of these data has stimulated the demand for more complex dynamic models along different research lines. On one side, the larger cross-sectional dimensions—which are easily accessible—pose challenges to the use of multivariate models, with the need of specifying appropriate estimation approaches and/or to impose data- and economically-driven parameter restrictions. On the other side, the data available at high frequency push for the development of data cleaning and data management tools as pre-requisites for time series analyses. More recently, data integration aspects have received attention, and financial time series data become a source of information for the estimation of financial networks within multidimensional time series models.
Currently, approaches that are even more flexible are needed to properly extract the relevant information from a rapidly growing amount of data, resorting, for instance, to statistical learning approaches or to functional methods.
In this perspective, the purpose of this Special Issue is to collect works that point at the development of state-of-the art methods or models which are appropriate for the analysis of financial data with a most prominent focus on the forecasting of tail risk measures.Prof. Dr. Massimiliano Caporin
