Statistics Seminar: Thomas Fung -- Modelling and Estimation for Bivariate Financial Returns

Thomas Fung Department of Statistics Macquarie University 

Location: Carslaw 173 

Time: 2pm Friday, March 5, 2010 

Title: Modelling and Estimation for Bivariate Financial Returns 

Abstract: Maximum likelihood estimates are obtained for long data sets of bivariate
financial returns using mixing representation of the bivariate (skew) Variance Gamma and
(skew) t distributions.  By analysing simulated and real data, issues such as asymptotic
lower tail dependence and competitiveness of the two models are illustrated.  A brief
review of the properties of the models is also included.
