This paper examines the forecasting performance of three value-at-risk (VaR) models (RiskMetrics, Normal APARCH and Student APARCH). We explore and compare two different possible sources of performance improvements: asymmetry in the conditional variance and fat-tailed distributions. Performance is assessed using a range of measures that address the accuracy and efficiency of each model.
