In this paper we propose a simple and effective two-step procedure to estimate the multivariate Lévy model introduced by Ballotta and Bonfiglioli (2012). We assess our estimation approach via simulations, comparing the results with those obtained through a standard but more computationally intensive one-step maximum likelihood estimation. The proposed method is then applied to the computation of the intra-horizon Value at Risk for a portfolio of assets following the model under consideration.
