Here, we compute the 99% monthly
value at risk using the variance-covariance method based on data of the last 3 years.
Basically, it means that based on historical data, it is 99% confident that you will
not lose more than VaR % of your portfolio in a month. Of course,
the lower the VaR, the better it is because it would mean lower risk.
