Project description

Based on Independent Component Analysis, a flexible well-posed multi-factor Lévy stochastic volatility model is proposed, which incorporates the correlation between the different assets as well as the leverage effect between stochastic volatility and the returns. Pricing and hedging of different types of multi-asset equity, currency and credit

derivatives will be carried out systematically under the proposed model and its extensions. (60 words)
