The Gradient Allocation Principle based on the Higher Moment Risk Measure

According to the gradient allocation principle based on a positively homogeneous and subadditive risk measure, the capital allocated to a sub-portfolio is the Gateaux derivative, assuming it exists, of the underlying risk measure at the overall portfolio in the direction of the sub-portfolio. We consider the capital allocation problem based on the higher moment risk measure, which, as a generalization of expected shortfall, involves a risk aversion parameter and a confidence level and is consistent with the stochastic dominance of corresponding orders. As the main contribution, we prove that the higher moment risk measure is Gateaux differentiable and derive an explicit expression for the Gateaux derivative, which is then interpreted as the capital allocated to a corresponding sub-portfolio. We further establish the almost sure convergence and a central limit theorem for the empirical estimate of the capital allocation, and address the robustness issue of this empirical estimate by computing the influence function of the capital allocation. We also explore the interplay of the risk aversion and the confidence level in the context of capital allocation.

This is based on a joint work with Fabio Gomez and Qihe Tang.
