Three types of financial instruments:

- Bank account (virtually risk-less)
- Share (moderate risk)
- Option (very risky)

Risk neutral valuationOne step binomial model

S(1)=110

V(1)= 5

S(0)=100

V(0)= ?

S(1)=90

V(1)= 0

- We create a portfolio:
- A number of shares, Δ
- Sell one option with strike 105 and unknown value V(0)
- The value of the portfolio P(t) = Δ·S(t) – V(t)

- Find Δ such that value of portfolio, P(1), is independent of the stock value
- Stock goes UP: P(1) = Δ·110 – 5
- Stock goes DOWN: P(1) = Δ·90 – 0
- UP = DOWN follows Δ·110 – 5 = Δ·90 and Δ = 0.25
- P(1) = 22.5

- Risk-less portfolio must earn the risk-free interest rate, say 5% per year
- Portfolio value today is P(0) = 22.5/e0.05×1 = 21.4
- Option value today V(0) = 0.25·100 – 21.4 = 3.6

Risk neutral valuationRisk neutral world

- Risk neutral valuation can be generalized:
- We can assume that all assets grow with the risk-free interest rate, if we can hedge all risks
- Mathematically, this corresponds to using a “risk free measure”

- Put it in a mathematical form

where r is the risk free interest rate.

The risk free interest rate is used to calculate a future value and to discount them.

Mathematical methods

- Trees (binomial, trinomial)

S(1)=121

V(1)=16

- Monte Carlo

S(1/2)=110

V(1/2)= 9.8

S(1)=99

V(1)= 0

S(0)=100

V(0)= 6.0

S(1/2)=90

V(1/2)= 0

- Partial differential equations

S(1)=81

V(1)= 0

- Analytical solutions (Black-Sholes equation, for example)
