Master thesis presentation Joanna Gatz TU Delft 29 of July 2007 Properties and Applications of the T copula

Properties and applications of the T copula Outline: Student t distribution T copula Pair-copula decomposition Vines Applications Conclusions & recommendations

Multivariate Student t distribution Random vector As then density is p-variate normal with mean and correlation matrix.

Univariate Student t distribution Density function Representation:

Bivariate Student t distribution

Properties of the Student t distribution Symmetric, Does not posses independence property, Family of the elliptical distributions: –Explicit relation between and Kendall’s –Partial correlation = Conditional correlation

Properties of the Student t distribution Upper tail dependence coefficient: Bivariate Student t distribution with and

T copula From Sklar’s theorem: T copula Density of the T copula:

T copula

Sampling T copula Generate T ~ random variable: Choleski decom. A of R; Simulate Set Return

Properties of the T copula Symmetric, Elliptical copula, Does not posses independence property, –Explicit relation between and Kendall’s –Partial correlation = Conditional correlation –Tail dependence coefficient

Estimation of the T copula Semi parametric pseudo likelihood: Transformation of the observations pseudo sample : Pseudo likelihood function Relation between and

Pair Copula Decomposition

Normal vine has a joint normal distribution Conditional correlation = partial correlation Rank correlation specification: –Spearman’s –Kendall’s T-vine degrees of freedom 123 2312

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.

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:

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:

Case study 4.4, 0.87814, 0.2384 42.2, 0.053 Max log likelihood = 2210.2 AIC = -4408.4 Max log likelihood = 2205.3 AIC = -4398.6 Max log likelihood = 2201.1 AIC = -4390.2 14.6, 0.23444.4, 0.878 68.4, -0.028 14, 0.238414.6, 0.2344 4.4, 0.8724

Case study T copula for pesudo- sample AIC performance: –Sample n=3000 from vine: AIC for copula: - 3314 > AIC for vine: - 3324 –Sample from copula: AIC for copula: -3409.8 < AIC for vine: -3377.6 And v = 8.2, Max log likelihood = 2166.6 AIC = -4341.2 > AIC for all 3 vines 4, 0.814, 0.2 42.2, 0.068

Case study Sample n=3000 from vine I: –Estimated bivariate T copulas: –Tail dependence coefficients: 123 4.4.878 14.238

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;
