Correlation Risk

From Open Risk Manual


Correlation Risk is the risk of a change in a Correlation parameter necessary for determination of the value of an instrument with multiple underlyings. [1]

Relevant instruments subject to correlation risk include all basket options, best-of-options, spread options, basis options, Bermudan options and quanto options. In a broader sense Correlation Risk is a component of Model Risk for all efforts of risk measurement that concern composite risks (e.g. in portfolio management context)
