Pricing Asian Options In Affine Garch Models
AbstractWe derive recursive relationships for the m.g.f. of the geometric average of the underlying within some affine Garch models [Heston and Nandi (2000), Christoffersen et al. (2006), Bellini and Mercuri (2007), Mercuri (2008)] and use them for the semi-analytical valuation of geometric Asian options. Similar relationships are obtained for low order moments of the arithmetic average, that are used for an approximated valuation of arithmetic Asian options based on truncated Edgeworth expansions, following the approach of Turnbull and Wakeman (1991). In both cases the accuracy of the semi-analytical procedure is assessed by means of a comparison with Monte Carlo prices. The results are quite good in the geometric case, while in the arithmetic case the proposed methodology seems to work well only in the Heston and Nandi case.
