8) Consider the portfolio η = [1, 1, 0] consisting of one unit of riskfree capital, one unit of the first risky asset and none of the second. The portfolio η is not acceptable since the payoff is negative if the coin toss results in tails. In the coherent risk measure framework, η requires an additional unit of riskfree capital resulting in η∗ADEH = [2, 1, 0] . Solving for our optimal portfolio η* involves minimizing the distance between η = [1, 1, 0] and η∗ ∈ Aη under the l2 norm using quadratic programming (QP).

Xn ) be the ordered sample of observations. Consider m candidate thresholds U1 , . . , Um such that xn−i , . . , xn > Ui for i = 1, . . , m. 2 For each threshold Ui , use the weighted average of Hill estimators proposed in Huisman et al. (2001) to estimate the tail index ξi of the GPD distribution. This method corrects for the small-sample bias of the original Hill estimator. 3 Then compute the maximum likelihood estimator of the scale parameter βi of the GPD, with the tail index ξi fixed to the value obtained in step 2.

In contrast to coherent risk measures which focus on the regulator, this paper operates from the firm’s perspective. In particular, we recognize that firms prefer to pursue investment opportunities that are capable of earning excess economic rents. This desire may stem from a perception of having superior information or investment ability. By implication, these ambitions result in portfolios that are not well-diversified.
