VaRES

VaRES: An R package for value at risk and expected shortfall. Value at risk and expected shortfall are the two most popular measures of financial risk. But the available R packages for their computation are limited. Here, we introduce an R contributed package written by the authors. It computes the two measures for over 100 parametric distributions, including all commonly known distributions. We expect that the R package could be useful to researchers and to the financial community.
