Various passport options and their valuation
The passport option is a call option on the balance of a trading account. The option holder retains the gain from trading, while the writer is liable for the loss. Multi-asset passport options and passport options with discrete constraints are studied. For the first ones the pricing equations are Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations. For those with discrete constraints, a linear complementary problem must be solved in order to price the option. The gain by selling passport options to utility maximizing investors and to investors who guess the market a certain percentage of the time is also examined.
