Abstract : This thesis studies the risk management and hedging, based on the Value-at-Risk (VaR) and the Conditional Value-at-Risk (CVaR) as risk measures. The first part offers a stocks return model that we test in real data from NSYE Euronext. Our model takes into account the probability of occurrence of extreme losses and the regime switching observed in the data. Our approach is to detect the different periods of each regime by constructing a hidden Markov chain and estimate the tail of each regime distribution by power laws. We empirically show that powers laws are more suitable than Gaussian law and stable laws. The estimated VaR is validated by several backtests and compared to other conventional models results on a basis of 56 stock market assets. In the second part, we assume that stock prices are modeled by exponentials of a Lévy process. First, we develop a numerical method to compute the cumulative VaR and CVaR. This problem is solved by using the formalization of Rockafellar and Uryasev, which we numerically evaluate by Fourier inversion techniques. Secondly, we are interested in minimizing the hedging risk of European options under a budget constraint on the initial capital. By measuring this risk by CVaR, we establish an equivalence between this problem and a problem of Neyman-Pearson type, for which we propose a numerical approximation based on the constraint relaxation.
