This paper proposes a methodology to provide risk measures for portfolios during extreme
events. The approach is based on splitting the multivariate extreme value distribution of the assets
of the portfolio into two parts: the distributions of each asset and their dependence function. The
estimation problem is also investigated. Then, stress-testing is applied for market indices portfolios
and Monte-Carlo based risk measures — Value-at-Risk and Expected Shortfall — are provided.
