What is Value at Risk?

Value at risk (VaR) is a measure of the risk of loss for investments.

The Value at Risk (VAR) describes the maximum expected loss over a given period of time

It estimates how much a set of investments might lose (with a given probability), given normal market conditions, in a set time period such as a day. VaR is typically used by firms and regulators in the financial industry to gauge the amount of assets needed to cover possible losses.



The Formula of Value at Risk

Value at Risk = The Amount of the Exposure x The Volatility of the Asset x The Time Horizon x The Confidence Limit
