Risk-Control Strategies

  title={Risk-Control Strategies},
  author={Patrice Gaillardetz and Saeb El Hachem},
  journal={arXiv: Risk Management},
In this paper, we consider the pricing of derivative products that involve dynamic hedging strategies and payments within the planning horizon. Equity-indexed annuities (EIAs), Guaranteed investment certificate (GIC), American and Barrier options are typical examples of these products. Our exploration involves evaluation under different assumptions related to the way the risk is tailored by the issuer. The unified constrained discrete stochastic dynamic programming framework presented in this… Expand

Worst-Case Valuation of Equity-Linked Products Using Risk-Minimizing Strategies
The global market for life insurance products has been stable over the years. However, equity-linked products which form about �fifteen percent of the total life insurance market has experienced aExpand

Partial Hedging for Equity-Linked Products Using Risk-Minimizing Strategies
In this article, we consider the pricing and hedging of equity-indexed annuities (EIAs) using local risk-minimizing strategies as well as evaluating the capital requirement for these products. SinceExpand
Nonquadratic Local Risk-Minimization for Hedging Contingent Claims in Incomplete Markets
A new criterion to perform hedging of contingent claims in incomplete markets by defining the local risk as a general, nonnecessarily quadratic, convex function of the local cost process and derives the corresponding optimal strategies and value function in both discrete and continuous time settings.

Hedging of options in a general semimartingale model
In this thesis, we investigate the mathematical theory of option pricing and option hedging which is a generaUzation of the Black-Scholes approach. We consider a very general stochastic model whereExpand
Optimization of conditional value-at risk
A new approach to optimizing or hedging a portfolio of nancial instruments to reduce risk is presented and tested on applications. It focuses on minimizing Conditional Value-at-Risk (CVaR) ratherExpand
Hedging guarantees in variable annuities under both equity and interest rate risks
Abstract Effective hedging strategies for variable annuities are crucial for insurance companies in preventing potentially large losses. We consider discrete hedging of options embedded in guaranteesExpand
Coherent Measures of Risk
In this paper we study both market risks and nonmarket risks, without complete markets assumption, and discuss methods of measurement of these risks. We present and justify a set of four desirableExpand

The theory presented in this paper is based to a large extent on recent results of the author concerning logarithmic concave measures on two stochastic programming decision models, where the solvability of the second stage problem only with a prescribed (high) probability is required. Expand
The Pricing of Options and Corporate Liabilities
If options are correctly priced in the market, it should not be possible to make sure profits by creating portfolios of long and short positions in options and their underlying stocks. Using thisExpand
Understanding the risk of leveraged ETFs
The purpose of this paper is to clarify the risks of leveraged ETFs. We do this by showing how to construct a k-times leveraged ETF as a dynamic portfolio in the ETF and a money market account. ThisExpand
Dynamic Coherent Risk Measures
It is shown that consistent dynamic coherent risk measures can be represented as the worst conditional expectation of discounted future losses where the expectations are being taken over a set of probability measures that satisfies a consistency condition. Expand
