Abstract

This paper studies the problem of finding best-possible upper bounds on the Value-at-Risk for a function of two random variables when the marginal distributions are known and additional nonparametric information on the dependence structure, such as the value of a measure of association, is available. The same problem for the Tail-Value-at-Risk is also briefly discussed.
