Explicit implied volatilities for multifactor local-stochastic volatility models
We consider an asset whose risk-neutral dynamics are described by a general class of local-stochastic volatility models and derive a family of asymptotic expansions for European-style option prices and implied volatilities. Our implied volatility expansions are explicit; they do not require any special functions nor do they require numerical integration. To illustrate the accuracy and versatility of our method, we implement it under five different model dynamics: CEV local volatility, quadratic local volatility, Heston stochastic volatility, $3/2$ stochastic volatility, and SABR local-stochastic volatility.
