VaR is often shrouded in mystery and complexity, which Veritas believes is a disservice to trading firms. It should not seem enigmatic to business executives who oversee these organizations. The mathematics and methodology behind VaR can, and should, be understood by all levels of the organization. This promotes transparency, ownership, and alignment.
The VaR Mathematics for Executives Webinar will demonstrate the steps of VaR calculation with realistic examples, from a sequential example which will illustrate the following:
- VaR of a single position
- VaR of two correlated positions
- VaR of a portfolio of positions
- Calculation of risk statistics (volatility and correlation) from historical price data
- Comparison of closed form VaR calculations with more general matrix math
Mike Burger, Partner and Co-Founder of Veritas Total Solutions, has 30 years of experience in energy risk management. Mike will lead this webinar and leave you with a better understanding of VaR fundamentals and practical applications in the front or middle office of a successful trading business.
The VaR Mathematics for Executives Webinar was LIVE on Tuesday, February 25th at 12pm CST. In case you missed it, an on-demand version is available for download.
