Such risk measures include the ‘expected value of loss’ from Domar and Musgrave (1944), Roy’s (1952) ‘safety first’, the ‘semi-variance’ proposed by Markowitz (1959), Value at Risk–VaR–(Morgan, 1993) and its extension Conditional VaR–CVaR– (Uryasev and Rockafellar, 1999), and Fishburn’s α – t criterion (1977). The latter not only constitutes the generalized case for the above ‘below-target’ risk measures, but it is also capable of representing the symmetric risk measures. Set against this background, a financial institution faces a second dilemma of deciding which of the two main risk metric categories symmetric or asymmetric measures of risk – represent its attitude towards risk and, therefore, should be utilized.

For each of these expected returns, the standard deviations of the portfolios (of assets) are computed. 5. According to Konno and Yamazaki (1991), the fact that the standard deviation efficient frontier of the MAD model does not coincide with the MEF is largely attributable to the non-normality of the returns data. MM The results of the minimax model are obtained and the corresponding risk figures are recomputed as standard deviation; in this we follow a procedure which is analogous to MAD procedure discussed above.
