Since most VaR calculations are based on the simplifying assumption that the distribution of returns are normal,15 how bad does this assumption effect VaR? Assume that the Profit and Loss (P&L) distribution is symmetric and has finite variance σ 2 . Then regardless of the actual distribution, if X represents the random loss over the specified horizon time with mean zero, Chebyshev’s inequality gives P[X > cσ ] 1 . 071σ . 978σ . 14 See Basle Committee on Banking Supervision (1995a, 1995b).
