# Left margin minipage two figures

I have a minipage with two figures, the problem is, that I want to have them shifted to the left, so the left margin should be smaller, the code of my minipage:

\begin{figure}[H]
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.6\linewidth}
\centering
\centerline{\includegraphics[scale=0.4]{simplevaralv.png}}
\caption[VaR assuming normal distribution, Allianz]{VaR assuming normal distribution, Allianz}
\label{sva}
\end{minipage}
\hspace{0.5cm}
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.6\linewidth}
\centering
\centerline{ \includegraphics[scale=0.4]{simplevarbasf.png}}
\caption[VaR assuming normal distribution, Basf]{VaR assuming normal distribution, BASF}
\label{svb}
\end{minipage}
\end{figure}


The result looks like this:

And I want to have it shifted to the left, how can I do this?

You can use a box and trick latex to think that the box has zero width and then center it:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{showframe} %% just to show frames.

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}[htb]
\centering
\makebox[0pt][c]{%
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.6\linewidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.4]{example-image-a}
\caption[VaR assuming normal distribution, Allianz]{VaR assuming normal distribution, Allianz}
\label{sva}
\end{minipage}%
\hspace{0.5cm}
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.6\linewidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.4]{example-image-b}
\caption[VaR assuming normal distribution, Basf]{VaR assuming normal distribution, BASF}
\label{svb}
\end{minipage}%
}%
\end{figure}
\end{document}


This can also be done with adjustbox package.
