# Value At Risk (summation)

A VAR statistic had 3 components:

- a time period
- a confidence interval
- a loss amount (or loss percentage)

There are 3 ways to calculate it:

- Historical Method using a histogram
- Variance-Covariance Method assumes normal distribution
- Monte Carlo Simulation

*Worst case is worse than VAR confidence interval predicts.*
