Simulated maximum likelihood for general stochastic volatility models: a change of variable approach

  • Kleppe, Tore Selland
  • Skaug, Hans J.

Maximum likelihood has proved to be a valuable tool for fitting the log-normal stochastic volatility model to financial returns time series. Using a sequential change of variable framework, we are able to cast more general stochastic volatility models into a form appropriate for importance samplers based on the Laplace approximation. We apply the methodology to two example models, showing that efficient importance samplers can be constructed even for highly non-Gaussian latent processes such as square-root diffusions.
