Recently, there has been an increasing interest on the combination of copulas with a finite mixture model. Such a framework is useful to reveal the hidden dependence patterns observed for random variables flexibly in terms of statistical modeling. The combination of vine copulas incorporated into a finite mixture model is also beneficial for capturing hidden structures on a multivariate data set. In this respect, the main goal of this study is extending the study of Kim et al. (2013) with different scenarios. For this reason, finite mixture of C-vine is proposed for multivariate data with different dependence structures. The performance of the proposed model has been tested by different simulated data set including various tail dependence properties.
