Capital allocation is of central importance in portfolio management and risk-based performance measurement. Capital allocations for univariate risk measures have been extensively studied in the finance literature. In contrast to this situation, few papers dealt with capital allocations for multivariate risk measures. In this paper, we propose an axiom system for capital allocation with multivariate risk measures. We first recall the class of the positively homogeneous and subadditive multivariate risk measures, and provide the corresponding representation results. Then it is shown that for a given positively homogeneous and subadditive multivariate risk measure, there exists a capital allocation principle. Furthermore, the uniqueness of the capital allocation principe is characterized. Finally, examples are also given to derive the explicit capital allocation principles for the multivariate risk measures based on mean and standard deviation, including the multivariate mean-standard-deviation risk measures.
