Calibration of the SABR Model in Illiquid Markets
AbstractRecently the SABR model has been developed to manage the option smile which is observed in derivatives markets. Typically, calibration of such models is straightforward as there is adequate data available for robust extraction of the parameters required asinputs to the model. The paper considers calibration of the model in situations where input data is very sparse. Although this will require some creative decision making, the algorithms developed here are remarkably robust and can be used confidently for mark to market and hedging of option portfolios.
