16
Inference for a vine Observe n variables at M time points,, Log-likelihood function for canonical vine: Cascade estimation procedure: Estimate parameters for tree 1; Compute observations for tree 2; Estimate parameters for tree 2; Compute observations for tree 3; Estimate parameters for tree 3; Etc.

17
Inference for three dimensional vine Observed data:, 1.Estimate and for tree 1 2.Compute observations and for tree 2 3. Estimate

Case study Estimating bivariate T copulas:

21
Case study Take under consideration: - Choice of the decomposition; Comparing all max log-likelihoods of all decompositions - infeasible for large dimensions; Determine the most important bivariate relations and let them determine the decomposition In case of the T copula, since low v indicates strong tail dependence, copulas in tree 1 should be ordered in increasing order with respect to v - Choice of the copula type; - Estimation of the parameters; - Model comparison criteria - AIC: Kulback-Leibler information Akaike (1973,1974) found a relation between K-L information and max log- likelihood value of model Akaike Information Crierion:

25
Conclusions & Recommendations T-copula can be used to model financial data –E.g. Modeling joint extreme co-movements; Copula-vine decomposition of the multivariate distribution captures complex dependence structures; –Hierarchical structure, where copulas as building blocks capture pair-wise interactions; –Cascade inference; It is possible to construct decomposition using different types of copulas the best fit pairs of data; Algorithms for finding the best decompositions; Criteria to compare copula-vine decompositions;
