Summary

The quantification of risk in the field of finance and insurance has been addressed from a univariate perspective, where value-at-risk is one of the most widely accepted measures. The hypotheses about the statistical distribution of reference (normal or lognormal) have also marked the research in this area. This project has proposed and studied new risk measures that incorporate multivariate behavior and capture the dependence between the components of the same. Such measures are necessary to address the complexity in risk management dictated by the current economic environment. The main lines of work of this project were: 1) non-parametric or semi-parametric methodology in the analysis of the statistical distributions for the quantification of risks, 2) measures of multivariate inequality and entropy 3) generalization to multidimensional risk measures 4) models for panel data with changing parameters and 5) specification contrasts. Several applications have been contemplated, among them those dedicated to insurance, energy sector, as well as pension applications, where multidimensionality is essential to combine the risk of longevity with the risk derived from the loss of personal autonomy (functional or cognitive dependence ). The financial and insurance regulations, through the directives of Basel III and Solvency II, suffers from notable deficiencies in the way of assessing the risk and requires the methodological advances related to the objectives of this project. It is therefore to be hoped that the results will be of interest both to the economic sectors involved in risk transfer and to the financing of business and, in general, to all citizens at a microeconomic level, With regard to your expectations for retirement
