Assumptions for the inflation risk tool

The inflation risk tool uses publicly available inflation data using data from statistical bureaus (like CBS). The first graph shows the data as provided. The second graph shows the YoY (year on year) % changes with the VaR (Value at Risk) results. The third graph shows the histogram of all YoY% changes.

We calculate the historical Value at Risk using the confidence level and look-back period as selected by the client. For the default historical time-frame we assume the period from 1993 up till now to be representative for the current European regime, however feel free to select different time-frames to assess the impact of potential regime changes. A 90% confidence percentile means that there is a 90% statistical chance that the risk would not be higher than the calculated level. This implies that there is a 10% chance that it would be higher.


We have made every attempt to ensure that the information contained in the inflation risk calculator has been obtained from reliable sources. Also that the model is properly applied and that all calculations have been properly executed. We believe this is the best available proxy of the risks based on publicly available data.
