Multivariate Asset Models Using Levy Processes and Applications

Ballotta, L. and Bonfiglioli, E. (2016). Multivariate Asset Models Using Levy Processes and Applications. The European Journal of Finance, 22(13), doi: 10.1080/1351847X.2013.870917


In this paper we propose a multivariate asset model based on L´evy processes for pricing of products written on more than one underlying asset. Our construction is based on a two factor representation of the dynamics of the asset log-returns. We investigate the properties of the model and introduce a multivariate generalization of some processes which are quite common in financial applications, such as subordinated Brownian motions, jump diffusion processes and time changed L´evy processes. Finally, we explore the issue of model calibration for the proposed setting and illustrate its robustness on a number of numerical examples.
