Pricing and Rick Analysis in Hyperbolic Local Volatility Model with Quasi‐Monte Carlo

  title={Pricing and Rick Analysis in Hyperbolic Local Volatility Model with Quasi‐Monte Carlo},
  author={Julien Hok and Sergei S. Kucherenko},
Local volatility models usually capture the surface of implied volatilities more accurately than other approaches, such as stochastic volatility models. We present the results of application of Monte Carlo (MC) and Quasi Monte Carlo (QMC) methods for derivative pricing and risk analysis based on Hyperbolic Local Volatility Model. In high-dimensional integration QMC shows a superior performance over MC if the effective dimension of an integrand is not too large. In application to derivative… Expand

Speeding up the Euler scheme for killed diffusions
This work introduces a drift-implicit Euler method to bring the convergence rate back to 1/N, i.e. the optimal rate in the absence of killing, using the theory of recurrent transformations developed in [6]. Expand


Pricing and Risk Management with High-Dimensional Quasi Monte Carlo and Global Sensitivity Analysis
We review and apply Quasi Monte Carlo (QMC) and Global Sensitivity Analysis (GSA) techniques to pricing and risk management (greeks) of representative financial instruments of increasing complexity.Expand
Monte Carlo Methods in Finance

Path Generation for Quasi-Monte Carlo Simulation of Mortgage-Backed Securities
Monte Carlo simulation is playing an increasingly important role in the pricing and hedging of complex, path dependent financial instruments. Low discrepancy simulation methods offer the potential toExpand
Calibration of local volatility model with stochastic interest rates by efficient numerical PDE methods
Long-maturity options or a wide class of hybrid products are evaluated using a local volatility-type modelling for the asset price S(t) with a stochastic interest rate r(t). The calibration of theExpand
Volatility Skews and Extensions of the Libor Market Model
The paper considers extensions of the Libor market model to markets with volatility skews in observable option prices. The family of forward rate processes is expanded to include diffusions withExpand
Accelerating CVA and CVA Sensitivities Using Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods
We analyze the efficiency of the quasi Monte Carlo method (QMC) when used to compute credit valuation adjustment (CVA) and CVA sensitivities for various portfolios of interest rate swaps using aExpand
On global sensitivity analysis of quasi-Monte Carlo algorithms
As a model problem two well-known approximations of a Wiener integral are considered: the standard one and the Brownian bridge, and the advantage of theBrownian bridge is confirmed. Expand
