Neural Network Based Models for Value-at-Risk Analysis
Kin Keung Lai

Although the original concept is simple and straightforward, the VaR estimation is in fact a very tough statistical proposition and unfortunately none of the traditional methods has achieved convincing results. The main reason behind this inefficiency is the overlooking of the stylised facts of asset return series and subsequent mis-specification of model assumptions. The primary purpose of this talk is the development and presentation of new methods based on neural networks for VaR estimation with application to financial time series in Asia markets.
