Monte Carlo Bounds for Game Options Including Convertible Bonds
We introduce two new methods to calculate bounds for zero-sum game options using Monte Carlo simulation. These extend and generalize upper-bound duality results to the case where both parties of a contract have Bermudan optionality. It is shown that the primal-dual simulation method can still be used as a generic way to obtain bounds in the extended framework, and we apply the new results to the pricing of convertible bonds by simulation.
