We will talk about Extreme Value Theory, and and its applications when modelling Financial series. The Theory started to emerge in the 1920's with a famous Theorem of Fisher-Tippet regarding the distribution of Block Maximas, and it continued to develop further with other Theorems focused on the distribution of extremes of a series, or what is called the tail of a distribution. We will present the state of the art of its industrial application, and show some examples.
