In this semi-annual MSCI Model Backtesting Review publication, we evaluate the 2018 performance of the key risk methodologies available in RiskMetrics RiskManager. These models are tested on a broad set of fixed-income and equity portfolios, representing global equity and bond markets. We review the major market events of 2018 in the context of risk-model performance and include a deeper analysis of the ramifications of oil price dynamics and high-yield credit markets.
