# To go from a monthly VAR to a weekly VAR you must:

- Multiply monthly expected return by 12 then divide by 52.
- Multiply expected standard deviation by √12 then divide by √52
- Finally 5% VAR = Expected Return – 1.65 (Standard Deviation)
- Or 1% VAR = Expected Return – 2.33 (Standard Deviation)
