Mean-cVaR model: How can one include transaction cost

$$ \min \delta CVaR - (1-\delta) \sum_i^{n} \mu_i x_i \\ \sum x_i = \sum x^{old}_i \\ Losses(s) = \sum x_i - \sum_i^{n} (R(s,i))x_i \\ VaRDev(s) = Losses(s) - VaR \\ CVaR = VaR + \frac{\sum_s^{} ...

How to understand quadratic finance or practice of Value-at -Risk(VaR)

We define the following notions for a jointly normally distributed random vector $P=(P_1,...,P_n)$ with f the density function. $$\mu=\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}(x_i-\mu_i)f_i(x_i)dx_i$$ $$\sigma^2_{ij}=...

What's the advantages of $EVaR$ over $CVaR$?

$CVaR$, which is short for Conditional Value-at-Risk, has long been accepted by both academe and practice as a good coherent risk measure. Entropic value-at-risk ($EVaR$) is a comparative new coherent ...

How to derive the limit of ratio between VaR and CVaR?

I know if $X \sim N(\mu,\sigma^2)$, then $VaR_{\alpha}(X) =\mu + \sigma\Phi^{-1}(\alpha)$ and $CVaR_{\alpha}(X) = \mu + \sigma \frac{\phi(\Phi^{-1}(\alpha))}{1-\alpha}$ But how to evaluate $\lim_{\...
