Bullet points include: Arguments in favour of TVaR are usually expressed in relatively mathematical language. Around the concept of coherence. E.g. Suppose VaR is at 99% confidence level, suppose firm A has one exposure to a 1 in 500 risk of loss of 100m, firm B has ten (independent) exposures to 1 in 500 risks of loss of 10m. VaR for A (=0) less than VaR for B, even though B better diversified. TVaR behaves more ‘sensibly’
