Special Issue "Risk Management Techniques for Catastrophic and Heavy-Tailed Risks"
A special issue of Risks (ISSN 2227-9091).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 April 2014)
Prof. Dr. José Garrido
By contrast to pricing, which is about a risk average (or central tendency), risk management has to do with the risk tail events over a short-term horizon. This special issue is devoted to the specific statistical and technical challenges that result from the risk management process, such as but not restricted to: (1) how to calibrate a risk management model when historical records report no or few catastrophic tail events (sparse data)? (2) what risk measures can be used on these extreme values when their Pareto-like behaviour prevents the existence of finite means and variances?
In addition to the small number of invited papers that are to appear in this special issue, we are cordially calling for contributed research papers or proposals. We welcome high-quality research papers, review articles as well as communications related to risk management for heavy-tailed risks, in particular on the following topics:
- Catastrophic risks
- Climate change
- Environmental risks
- Operational risk
