This paper applies extreme value theory (EVT) and Hawkes processes in the AR-GARCH framework to model the tail risk clustering effect. The proposed model improves forecasts of the timing of extreme returns and is particularly useful for downside risk analysis. Due to a large parameter set, we propose a two-step calibration method to estimate the model. We apply this model on 90 stocks, including both large-caps and small-caps, in nine industry sectors. The out-sample experiments show a strong self-excitation of negative AR-GARCH residuals, and it is well captured using the proposed model. The value-at-risk forecasting experiments over the past 25 years con rm that our model produces accurate downside risk estimations. More importantly, the proposed model provides more accurate risk analysis results during market crisis than other existing benchmark models.
