Similarly, the deltas with respect to the second and third factors are 1 . 18 and 1 . 24, respectively. The relative importance of the factors can be seen by multiplying the factor exposure by the factor standard deviation. The second factor is about 1 . 18 × 6 . 05 7 . 85 × 17 . 49 = 5 . 2% as important as the first factor. The third factor is about 1 . 24 × 3 . 10 1 . 18 × 6 . 05 = 53 . 8% as important as the second factor. 8.12 (a) A loss of $1 million extends from the 94 percentile point of the loss distribution to the 96 percentile point. The 95% VaR is therefore $1 million. (b) The expected shortfall for one of the investments is the expected loss conditional that the loss is in the 5 percent tail. Given that we are in the tail there is a 20% chance than the loss is $1 million and an 80% chance that the loss is $10 million. Thethat we are in the tail there is a 20% chance than the loss is $1 million and an 80% chance that the loss is $10 million....
