MSCI Risk Monitor - RiskMetrics Europe - May 2013

The monthly MSCI Risk Monitor: RiskMetrics Europe report examines recent levels of volatility and correlation for 12 key global risk drivers, using a common RiskMetrics risk forecasting model; depending on market developments, we select different factors each month (see the Appendix for all possible factors).  The report compares recent volatility and correlation forecasts to longer term historical averages, and examines forecast performance by highlighting recent returns that were large relative to the risk forecast.  The report provides a broad view of changes in global market risks, and assists risk managers in explaining risk changes and risk model performance on their own portfolios.
