LIMITATIONS OF VALUE-AT-RISK (VAR) FOR BUDGET ANALYSIS
No 23612, Agribusiness & Applied Economics Report from North Dakota State University, Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics
Value-at-risk (VaR) is increasingly being applied to problems in agriculture, especially valuation of crop insurance and agricultural lending risk exposure. VaR conveys the probability that losses exceeding a threshold will likely occur within a specified timeframe. However, it does not provide the expected value of losses, should they happen. When determining risk exposure for budget analysis, this latter amount is of keen interest. Expected tail loss (ETL) methods are developed and compared with VaR.
