This article reviews methods from extreme value analysis with applications to risk assessment in finance. It covers three main methodological paradigms: the classical framework for independent and identically distributed data with application to risk estimation for market and operational loss data, the multivariate framework for cross-sectional dependent data with application to systemic risk, and the methods for stationary serially dependent data applied to dynamic risk management. The article is addressed to statisticians with interest and possibly experience in financial risk management who are not familiar with extreme value analysis.
