Equivalent distortion risk measures on moment spaces
Dries Cornilly and
Statistics & Probability Letters, 2019, vol. 146, issue C, 187-192
We show that maximizing distortion risk measures over the set of distributions with given mean is equivalent to maximizing their concave counterpart. In the case of Value-at-Risk and Tail Value-at-Risk the equivalence also holds when adding information on higher moments.
