Abstract: Abstract We evaluated the performance of multivariate models for forecasting Value at Risk (VaR), Expected Shortfall (ES), and Expectile Value at Risk (EvaR). We used Historical Simulation (HS), Dynamic Conditional Correlation-Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedastic (DCC-GARCH) and copula methods: Regular copulas, Vine copulas, and Nested Archimedean copulas (NAC). We assessed the performance of the models using Monte Carlo simulations, considering different scenarios, regarding the marginal distributions, correlation, and number of portfolio assets. Numerical results evidenced the accuracy forecasting risk measures are associated with marginal distributions. For a data-generating process where the marginal distribution is Gaussian, Regular and Vine copulas demonstrated better performance. For data generated with Student’s t distribution, we verified better performance by NAC. In addition, we identified the superiority of copula methods over HS and DCC-GARCH, which reduces the model risk.
