Summary
In this paper we propose an alternative way to implementthe historical simulation approach to Value-at-Risk (VaR) measurement, employing a non-parametric kernel quantile estimator (Sheather and Marron (1990)) of the probability density function (pdf) of the return portfolio. Then we derive an expression for the pdf of any order statistic of the return distribution. That pdf is not analytic, and we employ numerical integration to obtain the moments of the order statistic, the mean being the estimate of VaR, and the standard deviation allowing the construction of a confidence interval around the estimate. We apply this method to trading portfolios provided by a financial institution.
