A Multivariate Time-Changed Lévy Model for Financial Applications


Author Info

  • Patrizia Semeraro



The purpose of this paper is to define a bivariate L´evy process by subordination of a Brownian motion. In particular we investigate a generalization of the bivariate Variance Gamma process proposed in Luciano and Schoutens [8] as a price process. Our main contribution here is to introduce a bivariate subordinator with correlated Gamma margins. We characterize the process and study its dependence structure. At the end wealso propose an exponential Lévy price model based on our process.
