The NIG-S&ARCH model: a fat-tailed, stochastic, and autoregressive conditional heteroskedastic volatility model
This paper examines the capabilities of the Normal Inverse Gaussian distribu-tion as a model for stock returns. We extend the model of Barndorff-Nielsen (1997) to allow for a richer volatility structure and compare with the existing GARCH-type models. We conclude that the proposed model outperforms some of the most praised GARCH-M models. In particular, we make a big gain in modelling the skewness of equity returns.
