Assessing Multiple Prior Models of Behaviour Under Ambiguity

Thursday 2 February 2012

The recent outpouring of theoretical models of behaviour under ambiguity can be partitioned into two sets: those involving multiple priors (in which the probabilities are not known but probabilities can be attached to the various possibilities) and those not involving multiple priors. This paper concentrates on the first set and provides an experimental investigation into recently proposed theories. Using an appropriate experimental interface, in which the probabilities on the various possibilities are explicitly stated, and avoiding problems with eliciting utilities over the various outcomes by just having two of them, we examine the fitted and predictive power of the various theories, making allowances for degrees of freedom where appropriate. We exclude some badly fitting models and estimate a mixture model over the remaining contenders.

Systemic Risk and Granular Institutional Investors

Thursday 24 November 2011

Abstract Through the granular view of institutional investors, we apply conditional value-at-risk estima- tion on micro-level weekly returns of international mutual funds, to understand their systemic risk contribution in the period before, in and after the ...nancial crisis of 2007-09. We ...nd that larger funds at the top end of tail size distribution contribute proportionally more to systemic risk; that systemically riskier funds generate higher return and receive more net in- ‡ow/asset under management than systemically safer funds in market tranquility, but register the opposite in crisis; and that systemic risk contribution accounts signi...cantly the aggregate ‡uctuations in regional interdependence of institutional investors.
