Abstract

This paper describes three measures of financial risk –Value at Risk (VaR) based on the Gaussian distribution, VaR based on extreme value theory and conditional VaR (expected shortfall) – and shows an application of these measures to the withdrawals of deposits in the Bolivian financial system. The results suggest that it’s important to consider the statistical assumptions of these measures, in order to avoid underestimate or overestimate the true financial risks.
