Illiquidity Risk of Truly Illiquid Assets

Illiquidity Risk of Truly Illiquid Assets
Thought Leadership Webinar:  It is a very common perception that investors dislike being constrained by liquidity of their investments at their investment horizons. Several years ago, we presented an approach based on a simulation of liquidity constrained optimizations as another endogenous approach to liquidity risk estimation. In this work, we present an exogenous, transaction frequency based approach, that is economically synonymous with our prior work, but empirically more tractable, granular, and transparent.

About This Webinar

It is a very common perception that investors dislike being constrained by liquidity of their investments at their investment horizons.  There has been a notable amount of academic and practitioner research work to try and capture the disutility of illiquidity  and its implication to risk and return.  Most of those studies have been done from the perspective of endogenous variables that measure this disutility – expected return premium for illiquidity or inferred from bid-ask spreads. 

Several years ago, we presented an approach based on a simulation of liquidity constrained optimizations as another endogenous approach to liquidity risk estimation.  In this work, we present an exogenous, transaction frequency based approach, that is economically synonymous with our prior work, but empirically more tractable, granular, and transparent. We will use examples form  private equity and commercial real estate to illustrate the new methodology.  One of the implications of this work is an explicit way to measure the expected cost of risk for asset types that don’t have well defined data for bid-ask spreads.
