A New Integrated Approach to Managing Risk in Financial Markets

Funding: 2005: $92,000
2006: $87,000
2007: $86,000

Project Member(s): Platen, E., Novikov, A., Schlogl, E.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2005

Summary: The project will develop a set of practicable, efficient and robust risk management methodologies for a new generation of financial technology, relevant for superannuation funds, banks and regulators. Recent risk management failures have highlighted the need for such an integrated and transparent approach, which nests existing models and allows a meaningful comparison according to economically well-founded performance criteria. By providing an innovative framework, which addresses a key empirical inconsistency of one of the central assumptions of modern quantitative finance, the methods developed in the project will be applicable beyond the typically short-term horizons of traditional risk management technology.
