Summary
The main part of this thesis consists of the following four articles. In Paper A, we present a Bayes model that allows for incorporation of stress tests based on scenario analysis and expert opinion. In Paper B, we discuss properties of Tukey’s g-and-h distribution in the light
of Extreme Value Theory (EVT). The extremely slow convergence of the excess distribution of a g-and-h to the generalized Pareto distribution (GPD) in the so-called Pickands-Balkema-de Haan Theorem questions the applicability of standard EVT results in this particular case. In Paper C, we present analytical results on diversification benefits within a more general risk class of dependent heavy-tailed risks based on the notion of asymptotic risk concentration and under the assumption of multivariate regular variation. This provides a natural framework to model stress. In Paper D, we investigate diversification benefits under the additional assumption
of second-order regular variation and under independence of the risk factors. For non-pathological distribution functions used in risk management practice, diversification benefits are smaller (and usually much s
