Abstract: In this paper, we generalize the parametric Delta-VaR method from portfolios with normally distributed risk factors to portfolios with elliptically distributed ones. We treat both expected shortfall and the Value-at-Risk of such portfolios. Special attention is given to the particular case of a multivariate t-distribution.
