Backtesting expected shortfall: evidence from European securitized real estate
Applied Economics Letters, 2018, vol. 25, issue 3, 176-182
Events such as the European sovereign debt crisis, terrorism and Brexit cause more uncertainty and volatility in capital markets. This encourages us to use both conditional and unconditional forecasts (backtests) for expected shortfall (ES) in 8 indices of listed European real estate securities and Real estate investment trusts (REITs). Using the method proposed by Du and Escanciano, we find that ES is generally superior to Value-at-Risk in describing and capturing risk during extreme events such as the financial crisis. Our results are important to regulators, risk managers and investors.
