Investment times in financial markets like stock markets are usually not fixed in advance, uncertainty about investment times is an important issue in many investment situations. However, traditional portfolio theory focuses only on market uncertainty by fixing the times of investments, our research on investment decision is featured by considering uncertainty of investment times. This talk is to introduce the Period Value at Risk, a risk measure we proposed for measuring market risk due to the uncertainty of investment times and the uncertainty of market. I will also talk about methods for computing PVaR with simulations.
