Abstract: A generalization of Normal Variance Mean Mixtures, named multivariate Mixed Tempered Stable distribution, is studied. Properties of this distribution and its capacity in capturing fat tails are discussed based on simulation analysis. We point out that this distribution is suitable in reproducing stylized facts and different dependence structures between asset returns.
