## Collocating Volatility

### A Competitive Alternative to Stochastic Local Volatility Models

## An SGBM-XVA demonstrator

### A scalable Python tool for pricing XVA

In this work, we developed a Python demonstrator for pricing total valuation adjustment (XVA) based on the stochastic grid bundling method (SGBM). XVA is an advanced risk management concept which became relevant after the recent financial crisis. This work is a follow-up work ...

This paper explains how to calibrate a stochastic collocation polynomial against market option prices directly. The method is first applied to the interpolation of short-maturity equity option prices in a fully arbitrage-free manner and then to the joint calibration of the con ...

## BENCHOP–SLV

### The BENCHmarking project in Option Pricing–Stochastic and Local Volatility problems

In the recent project BENCHOP–the BENCHmarking project in Option Pricing we found that Stochastic and Local Volatility problems were particularly challenging. Here we continue the effort by introducing a set of benchmark problems for this type of problems. Eight different meth ...

## The stochastic collocation Monte Carlo sampler

### Highly efficient sampling from ‘expensive’ distributions

In this article, we propose an efficient approach for inverting computationally expensive cumulative distribution functions. A collocation method, called the Stochastic Collocation Monte Carlo sampler (SCMC sampler), within a polynomial chaos expansion framework, allows us the ...

## On a one time-step Monte Carlo simulation approach of the SABR model

### Application to European options

In this work, we propose a one time-step Monte Carlo method for the SABR model. We base our approach on an accurate approximation of the cumulative distribution function of the time-integrated variance (conditional on the SABR volatility), using Fourier techniques and a copula ...
