Multivariate option pricing models with levy and sato vg marginal processes

Journal Contribution - e-publication

Pricing and hedging of financial instruments whose payoff depends on the joint realization of several underlyings (basket options, spread options, etc.) require multivariate models that are, at the same time, computationally tractable and flexible enough to accommodate the stylized facts of asset returns and of their dependence structure. Among the most popular models one finds models with VG marginals. The aim of this paper is to compare four multivariate models that are characterized by VG laws at unit time and to assess their performance by considering the flexibility they offer to calibrate the dependence structure for fixed marginals.
