Weighted Risk Capital Allocations in the Presence of Systematic Risk

Determining aggregate risk capital is a fundamental problem of modern Enterprise Risk Management, and the determination process has been fairly well studied. The allocation problem, on the other hand, is generally much more involved even when a specific risk measure inducing the allocation rule is assumed, let alone the case when a class of risk measures is considered. In this talk I put forward arguments showing that the problems of determining and allocating the aggregate risk capital can often be viewed as being of similar complexity. In particular, I show that this is the case for the entire class of weighted risk capital allocations, as well as for risk portfolios that are exposed to systematic and specific risk factors.
