When ρ(η) = 0, an amount γ ∗ of riskfree capital may be removed from the portfolio according to supγ ∗ ρ(η − γ ∗ ηc ) = 0, which is unique by the monotonicity of riskfree capital property. Since Aη is closed, there exists a boundary point which minimizes the required amount of riskfree capital. Although quadratic programming is capable of solving for γ ∗ , this issue is not elaborated on further as our focus concerns unacceptable η portfolios. A M I Y A T O S H P U R N A N A N D A M E T A L. 2 Economic motivation An unacceptable portfolio may initially be chosen by a firm which believes it has superior information or investment skill.

XN ) is the sample of observed losses and L is the collection threshold. It must be maximized in order to estimate θ. Usually, the quality of distribution fitting is assessed through goodnessof-fit tests. All these tests are based on a comparison between the observed cumulative distribution function and the hypothetical one. Consequently, they should be adjusted to account for the collection threshold as well. 68) distribution. 2 reports three cases: In Case 1, the whole series is considered (for example, there is no collection threshold) and the parameters are estimated by the Maximum Likelihood technique.

1 Properties of risk measure The next proposition summarizes the properties of our risk measure. Interestingly, all but one of ADEH’s coherence axioms are preserved. However, removal of the translation invariance axiom results in an important generalization by eliminating the strict dependence on riskfree capital to reduce risk. To clarify, the operations η1 ± η2 are applied componentwise to signify operations on two vectors representing portfolio holdings. 2 The proposed risk measure with diversification has the following properties: 1 Subadditivity ρ(η1 + η2 ) ≤ ρ(η1 ) + ρ(η2 ) 2 Monotonicity ρ(η1 ) ≤ ρ(η2 ) if Pη1 ≥ Pη2 3 Positive homogeneity ρ(γη) = γρ(η) for γ ≥ 0 4 Riskfree capital monotonicity ρ(η + γηc ) ≤ ρ(η) for γ ≥ 0 5 Relevance ρ(η) > 0 if η ∈ / Aη 6 Shortest path For every η ∈ / Aη and for 0 ≤ γ ≤ ||η − η∗ ||2 : ˜ = ρ(η) − γ ρ(η + γ · u) where u˜ is the unit vector in the direction η∗ − η defined as η∗ − η/||η∗ − η||2 given a portfolio η∗ that lies on the boundary of Aη and minimizes the distance ||η − η∗ ||2 .
