Abstract: The tail behaviour of many bivariate distributions with unit Fréchet margins can be characterised by the coefficient of tail dependence and a slowly varying function. We show that such a characterisation is not always possible, and neither implies nor is implied by the fact that the distribution belongs to the domain of attraction of a bivariate extreme value distribution.
