Economic Capital: An Alternate Copula-Free Approach

Submitted on 7th September 2017

Economic capital models are getting increasingly complex. An alternate copula-free approach is presented that uses accounting data and an implicit correlation model to simplify economic capital calculations. Model simplification leads to robust and stable models. A banking case study is used to showcase how the model can be deployed using publicly available accounting data, capital adequacy, leverage ratios and shortfall tools.
