    Sammanfattning : This paper examines Asian, lookback and barrier options of European style on thetime interval [0; T], where T is the time of maturity. The purpose is to investigatenumerical methods to compute their price within the Black-Scholes model. LÄS MER

  2. 2. CEO Incentives and firm risk: in the context of cross-listing

    Magister-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Författare :William Lennartsson; Harley Ljungdahl; [2019]
    Nyckelord :CEO compensation; CEO incentives; Stock options; Firm risk; Black-Scholes; Delta; Vega; Agency Theory; Business and Economics;

    Sammanfattning : This research aims to investigate the relation of CEO compensation, especially how the sensitivity of CEO wealth to stock return volatility (vega), but also how the sensitivity of CEO wealth to stock price (delta) affects the risk of the firm. Moreover, these relations are investigated in the context of cross-listing to examine whether there are differences between US-only listed firms and those that are dual listed. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Stress-testing of the Russian Banking Sector: Contingent Claims Analysis Approach

    Magister-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Författare :Anna Kulakova; [2019]
    Nyckelord :credit risk; stress-testing; contingent claims analysis; Merton model; vector autoregression; Business and Economics;

    Sammanfattning : This study aims to perform stress-testing of the Russian banking sector with a focus on credit risk measures derived by using contingent claims analysis, an extension of Black-Scholes and Merton option pricing theory. Risk exposure indicators are linked to a number of macroeconomic variables that describe global and domestic economic and financial development. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Implied Volatility Surface Approximation under a Two-Factor Stochastic Volatility Model

    Kandidat-uppsats, Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för utbildning, kultur och kommunikation; Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för utbildning, kultur och kommunikation

    Författare :Nathaniel Ahy; Mikael Sierra; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Implied Volatility; Stochastic Volatility; Implied Volatility Surfaces; European Options; Moore-Penrose Inverse; ;

    Sammanfattning : Due to recent research disproving old claims in financial mathematics such as constant volatility in option prices, new approaches have been incurred to analyze the implied volatility, namely stochastic volatility models. The use of stochastic volatility in option pricing is a relatively new and unexplored field of research with a lot of unknowns, where new answers are of great interest to anyone practicing valuation of derivative instruments such as options.

  5. 5. Merton Jump-Diffusion Modeling of Stock Price Data

    Kandidat-uppsats, Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för matematik (MA)

    Författare :Furui Tang; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Black-Scholes Model; Poisson Process; Compound Poisson Process; Merton Jump-Diffusion Model;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, we investigate two stock price models, the Black-Scholes (BS) model and the Merton Jump-Diffusion (MJD) model. Comparing the logarithmic return of the BS model and the MJD model with empirical stock price data, we conclude that the Merton Jump-Diffusion Model is substantially more suitable for the stock market.
