Pricing vulnerable options with jump risk and liquidity risk

In this paper, we consider vulnerable options with jump risk and liquidity risk. In the proposed framework, we allow discontinuous changes in the information processes and the liquidity discount factors as well, and default risk is taken into …


Mean-variance hedging in the presence of estimation risk

The mean-variance hedging (MVH) with a significant risk-aversion coefficient is approximately equal to the minimum-variance (MV) hedge. However, how large the risk-aversion coefficient should be in practice? We determine the boundaries of …

Idiosyncratic volatility, option-based measures of informed trading, and investor attention

We establish a direct link between sophisticated investors in the option market, private stock market investors, and the idiosyncratic volatility (IVol) puzzle. To do so, we employ three option-based volatility spreads and attention data from …


The value of power-related options under spectrally negative Lévy processes

We provide analytical tools for pricing power options with exotic features (capped or log payoffs, gap options etc.) in the framework of exponential Lévy models driven by one-sided stable or tempered stable processes. Pricing formulas take the …


Bayesian estimation of the stochastic volatility model with double exponential jumps

This paper generalizes the stochastic volatility model to allow for the double exponential jumps. To derive the jumps and time-varying volatility in returns, we implement an efficient Markov chain Monte Carlo approach based on the band and sparse …

Über diese Zeitschrift

The proliferation of derivative assets during the past two decades is unprecedented. With this growth in derivatives comes the need for financial institutions, institutional investors, and corporations to use sophisticated quantitative techniques to take full advantage of the spectrum of these new financial instruments. Academic research has significantly contributed to our understanding of derivative assets and markets. The growth of derivative asset markets has been accompanied by a commensurate growth in the volume of scientific research.

The rapid growth of derivatives research combined with the current absence of a rigorous research journal catering to the area of derivatives, and the long lead-times in the existing academic journals, underlines the need for Review of Derivatives Research, which provides an international forum for researchers involved in the general areas of derivative assets. The Review publishes high quality articles dealing with the pricing and hedging of derivative assets on any underlying asset (commodity, interest rate, currency, equity, real estate, traded or non-traded, etc.). Specific topics include but are not limited to:
econometric analyses of derivative markets (efficiency, anomalies, performance, etc.)
analysis of swap markets
market microstructure and volatility issues
regulatory and taxation issues
credit risk
new areas of applications such as corporate finance (capital budgeting, debt innovations), international trade (tariffs and quotas), banking and insurance (embedded options, asset-liability management)
risk-sharing issues and the design of optimal derivative securities
risk management, management and control
valuation and analysis of the options embedded in capital projects
valuation and hedging of exotic options
new areas for further development (i.e. natural resources, environmental economics.

The Review has a double-blind refereeing process. In contrast to the delays in the decision making and publication processes of many current journals, the Review will provide authors with an initial decision within nine weeks of receipt of the manuscript and a goal of publication within six months after acceptance. Finally, a section of the journal is available for rapid publication on `hot' issues in the market, small technical pieces, and timely essays related to pending legislation and policy.
