Q3. The following table contains information about your UK equity portfolio – the stocks you hold and how many (note you are long in all positions). Stock price data is given in the Excel spreadsheet ‘Coursework Data 2018.xlsx’ Table 1 : UK Equity Portfolio Company: Number of Shares Tesco: 1,200,000 Rolls Royce: 750,500 BP: 835,575 Centrica: 1,825,500 EasyJet: 915,385 HSBC: 250,785 Choose any date between the 15th of January 2018 and the 15th of May 2018. That day is today for you (I hope that every student will chose a different day which denotes TODAY). Clearly mention what TODAY is for you. Calculate the 95 percent 10-day VaR of your portfolio using the variance covariance approach.

Recalculate the 95 percent 10-day VaR using an exponential moving average as your volatility measure. Recalculate the 95 percent 10-day VaR using historic simulation. Compare your estimates with the actual 10-day VaR. Write an (up to) 1,500 word report to your advisory board outlining the risk your portfolio is exposed too, what VaR measures and present and explain the different VaR estimates. Also include in your report the issue of back-testing, its importance and how you could do the back-testing in practice.
