Pricing with Variance Gamma Information

  title={Pricing with Variance Gamma Information},
  author={Lane P. Hughston and Leandro S'anchez-Betancourt},
In the information-based pricing framework of Brody, Hughston & Macrina, the market filtration {Ft}t≥0 is generated by an information process {ξt}t≥0 defined in such a way that at some fixed time T an FT-measurable random variable XT is “revealed”. A cash flow HT is taken to depend on the market factor XT, and one considers the valuation of a financial asset that delivers HT at time T. The value of the asset St at any time t∈[0,T) is the discounted conditional expectation of HT with respect to…

A pricing model for real-estate business in Bangladesh incorporating the uncertainty in buyer’s readiness: considerations during COVID-19 pandemic

The real-estate business is considered one of the significant contributors to the economy of Bangladesh. However, the sudden occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbates the housing business and

Information-Based Trading

We consider a pair of traders in a market where the information available to the second trader is a strict subset of the information available to the first trader. The traders make prices based on the



Information-Based Asset Pricing

A new framework for asset price dynamics is introduced in which the concept of noisy information about future cash flows is used to derive the corresponding price processes. In this framework an

Information-based models for finance and insurance

In financial markets, the information that traders have about an asset is reflected in its price. The arrival of new information then leads to price changes. The `information-based framework' of


We consider the problem of determining the Lévy exponent in a Lévy model for asset prices given the price data of derivatives. The model, formulated under the real-world measure [Formula: see text],

An Information-Based Framework for Asset Pricing: X-Factor Theory and its Applications

A new framework for asset pricing based on modelling the information available to market participants is presented. Each asset is characterised by the cash flows it generates. Each cash flow is

Modelling Information Flows in Financial Markets

This paper presents an overview of information-based asset pricing. In this approach, an asset is defined by its cash-flow structure. The market is assumed to have access to "partial" information

Pricing Fixed-Income Securities in an Information-Based Framework

Abstract The purpose of this article is to introduce a class of information-based models for the pricing of fixed-income securities. We consider a set of continuous-time processes that describe the

Credit Risk, Market Sentiment and Randomly-Timed Default

We propose a model for the credit markets in which the random default times of bonds are assumed to be given as functions of one or more independent "market factors". Market participants are assumed

Beyond Hazard Rates: A New Framework for Credit-Risk Modelling

A new approach to credit risk modelling is introduced that avoids the use of inaccessible stopping times and satisfies an overall dynamic consistency condition that makes it suitable as a basis for practical modelling situations where frequent recalibration may be necessary.
