Ok,

For the moment, there is only this in the CTV on finance "
several packages provide functionality for Extreme Value Theory models: evd, evdbayes, evir, extRremes, ismev, POT. "

Before the useR conference, I tried to think on a future section on EVT to start a discussion.

Thanks for your quick answer

Christophe
