Advanced Exotic Equity Derivatives Pc-Based Workshop / Seminar

Advanced Exotic Equity Derivatives Pc-Based Workshop This two day seminar will focus on the three most relevant exotic families for the equity market today: Barrier options, forward start options and variance swaps.

Advanced smile and credit modelling are essential for the pricing and hedging of these exotic instruments, and in turn they provide key calibration information.

You will cover this throughout the first day by describing the instruments, explaining the most popular tricks of the trade to price and hedge them, and identifying the limits of these closed form formulae. We motivate the need for advanced smile and credit modelling throughout the course.

The second day is aimed at exploring the practical issues as the theoretical results of the first day are brought to bear through two workshops and a series of computer simulations.

We aim to explain why barriers, forward starts and variance swaps are truly exotic by showing that they entail information which cannot be recovered from the vanilla options and the CDS alone.

We introduce a general reduced form homogeneous model with regimes which we use as a platform in order to investigate in details the problems of co-calibration for the pricing and hedging of our exotic instrument families.

Key updates to this successful seminar include latest developments in variance swaps and a new session on volatility trading.

• Explore in depth the three exotic families of most relevance for the equity market today: Barrier options, forward start options and variance swaps

• Understand the role of exotic instruments in the calibration of consistent equity models

• Look into advanced smile and credit models

• Optimise volatility trading by analysing variance swaps and volatility strategies
