Allocations of risk capital: A not so simple view from the simplex

In this talk, we connect the allocation of risk capital to a general class of Dirichlet distributions defined on the n-dimensional simplex. The mixed-scaled Dirichlet distributions proposed herein contain the classical Dirichlet distribution as a special case, exhibit a multitude of desirable closure properties, and emerge naturally within the multivariate risk analysis context. As a by-product, our invention revisits the proportional allocation rule that is often used in applications.
