## Marginal VaR Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Marginal VaR.

MVaR = Tvar - Ivar

Variables:

- MVaR is the Marginal VaR ($)
- Tvar is the total VAR ($)
- Ivar is the initial value at risk ($)

To calculate the marginal value at risk (VaR), subtract the initial value at risk from the total VaR.

## How to Calculate Marginal VaR?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Marginal VaR.

- First, determine the total VAR ($).
- Next, determine the initial value at risk ($).
- Next, gather the formula from above = MVaR = Tvar – Ivar.
- Finally, calculate the Marginal VaR.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total VAR ($) = 500

initial value at risk ($) = 250

MVaR = Tvar – Ivar** **= ?
