Abstract

Plusieurs gestionnaires de portefeuille pensent encore à tort qu’une couverture delta suffit pour protéger leur portefeuille contre les fluctuations des marchés financiers. Mais une augmentation marquée de la volatilité des cours boursiers les décevra dans leurs attentes. Après avoir exposé les rudiments mathématiques de l’équation de Black et Scholes, cet article présente des simulations inédites dans Excel de la couverture delta et de la couverture delta-gamma basées sur la formule de Black et Scholes. On y constate que la couverture delta-gamma est de loin préférable à une simple couverture delta.
