  1. 1. Option pricing models: A comparison between models with constant and stochastic volatilities as well as discontinuity jumps

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik; Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik

    Author : Carl Paulin; Maja Lindström; [2020]
    Keywords : Financial mathematics; option pricing; calibration; options; parameter calibration; Black Scholes Merton model; Heston model; Bates model; Merton jump diffusion model; Black Scholes;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to compare option pricing models. We have investigated the constant volatility models Black-Scholes-Merton (BSM) and Merton’s Jump Diffusion (MJD) as well as the stochastic volatility models Heston and Bates. READ MORE

  2. 2. Pricing of a balance sheet option limited by a minimum solvency boundary

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik; KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Josefine Bofeldt; Sara Joon; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Pension companies are required by law to remain above a certain solvency level. The main purpose of this thesis is to determine the cost of remaining above a lower solvency level for different pension companies. This will be modelled by an option with a balance sheet as the underlying asset. READ MORE

  3. 3. Efficient Monte Carlo Simulation for Counterparty Credit Risk Modeling

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Sam Johansson; [2019]
    Keywords : CCR; OTC derivatives; European option; Bermudan option; CVA; jump-diffusion model; stochastic intensity model; Monte Carlo; variance reduction; importance sampling; least squares Monte Carlo; CCR; OTC-derivat; europeisk option; Bermuda-option; CVA; jump-diffusion-modell; stokastisk intensitetsmodell; Monte Carlo; variansreduktion; importance sampling; least squares Monte Carlo;

    Abstract : In this paper, Monte Carlo simulation for CCR (Counterparty Credit Risk) modeling is investigated. A jump-diffusion model, Bates' model, is used to describe the price process of an asset, and the counterparty default probability is described by a stochastic intensity model with constant intensity.

  4. 4. To what degree is the VIX benchmark computed by CBOE representative of its definition?

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Patrik Liedbeck; Wilhlem Ålander; [2018]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : The purpose of this paper is through an empirical approach understand the dynamics of VIX and investigate to what degree the benchmark computed by CBOE is representative of its definition. The method implemented is of a design where one constructs a hypothetical world in which synthetic options data are produced by the Bates-Heston model. READ MORE
