3 Absrac We prese a closed pricig formula for Europea opios uder he Black Scholes model ad formulas for is parial derivaives. The formulas are developed makig use of Taylor series expasios ad by expressig he spaial derivaives as expecaios uder special measures, as i Carr, ogeher wih a uusual chage of measure echique ha relies o he replaceme of he iiial codiio. The closed formulas are aaied for he case where o divided payme policy is cosidered. Despie is small pracical relevace, a digial divided policy case is also cosidered which yields approximaio formulas. The resuls are readily exesible o ime depede volailiy models bu o so for localvol ype models. For compleeess, we reproduce he umerical resuls i Vellekoop ad Nieuwehuis usig he formulas here obaied. The closed formulas preseed here allow a fas calculaio of prices or implied volailiies whe compared wih oher valuaio procedures ha rely o umerical mehods.

4 1 1 Iroducio 1.1 Moivaio The moivaio o reur o his issue is he fac ha wheever a ew produc, model or valuaio procedure is developed, he problem ha arises wih discree divideds is dismissed or overlooked by applyig he usual approximaio ha rasforms he discree divided io a coiuous sream of divided paymes proporioal o he sock price. Afer all ha has bee said abou he way o hadle discree divideds, here are sill srog reasos o jusify such a approach. We recall here he reasos ha uderlie he use of his mehod by he majoriy of marke paricipas ad pricig ools currely available. We choose he word mehod o refer o his procedure because we believe i o be more suiable ha model. The reaso for his is ha, if oe cosiders wo opios wih differe mauriies, wrie o he same uderlyig sock, his mehod implies wo differe diffusio price processes for he same uderlyig sock uder he same measure. This is aurally a ureasoable choice o model he uderlyig sock price, especially because i would admi arbirage opporuiies. The drivers behid he huge populariy of his mehod are mosly due o he (i racabiliy of he valuaio formulas, (ii applicabiliy o ay give model for he uderlyig sock, ad (iii he preserved coiuiy of he opio price whe crossig each divided dae. However, i has some sigifica drawbacks. Firs ad foremos he iaccurae pricig i produces has o be meioed. Furhermore, he error grows larger as he divided dae is farher away from he valuaio dae. This is exacly he opposie behavior of wha oe would expec from a approximaio a larger period of ime bewee he valuaio dae ad he divided dae meas ha he opio valuaio fucios are smooher, ad hus should be easier o approximae. The oher side of he iaccurae pricig coi is he fac ha his mehod does o provide a hedgig sraegy ha will guaraee he replicaio of he opio payoff a mauriy. To sum up, o umerical procedure based o his mehod reurs (or coverges o he rue value of he opio, whaever he model. I sill seems like he advaages ouweigh he drawbacks sice i is he mos widely used mehod. A example may help o demosrae his. Cosider a sochasic volailiy model wih jumps. Now cosider he valuaio problem of a America syle opio uder his model. The complexiy of his problem is such ha a rigorous reame of discree divideds, i.e. a modificaio of he uderlyig s diffusio o accou for ha fac, would reder he model iracable. 1.2 Descripio of he Problem The problem arises due o he fac ha he diffusio models, like he BlackScholes (BS model, are o loger a accepable descripio of he sock price dyamics whe he sock pays discree divideds. The risks ha occur i his coex are maily he poeial losses arisig from icorrec valuaio ad ieffecive hedgig sraegy. We address boh of hese issues i his paper. The mos aural exesio o he a diffusio model o accou for he exisece of discree divideds is o cosider he same diffusio, for example, ds = S (rd + σdw, (1 ad add a egaive jump wih he same size as he divided, o he divided payme dae as S D = S D, (2 D
5 2 where S is he sock price, r is he cosa ieres rae, σ is he volailiy ad W is a sadard Browia moio. S refers o he ime immediaely before he dividedpayme mome, D, D ad S D o he mome immediaely afer. There are some commo objecios o his formulaio hough. A firs objecio may be he assumpio ha he sock price will fall by he amou of he divided size. This objecio is maily drive by he effecs axes have o he behavior of fiacial ages ad hus marke prices. We will o cosider his objecio i his paper ad hus assume model (2 o be valid. A secod objecio may be ha he divided payme dae ad amou are o precisely kow uil a few mohs before heir payme. We also believe his o be he case, bu o cosider i i a proper fashio, he model would grow sigificaly i complexiy. Our goal is raher o devise a simple variaio ha ca be applied o a wide class of models, ha does o worse he racabiliy of he model ad ha produces accurae resuls. Fially, oe ca argue ha he model admis egaive prices for he sock price S. This is i fac rue ad ca easily be see if oe akes he sock price S o be smaller ha D a ime D D. A simple soluio o his problem is o add a exra codiio, for example replace (2, S D = S D D if S > D. (3 D However, i mos pracical applicaios, his is o of grea imporace sice he vas majoriy of he compaies ha pay divideds, have divided amous ha amou o a small fracio of he sock price, i.e. less ha 10% of he sock price, rederig he probabiliy assiged o egaive prices very small. For his reaso we may drop his codiio wheever i would add sigifica complexiy. I he ex secio we review he exisig lieraure o his subjec ad he reasos ha uderlie he use of he mehod mos popular amog praciioers. We he ur o develop he formulas i secio 2 ad i secio 3 we reproduce he umerical resuls i 19]. Secio 4 cocludes. 1.3 Lieraure Review Here we shorly review he lieraure o modificaios of sock price models o cope wih he discree divided paymes. Mero 12] (1973 aalyzed he effec of discree divideds i America calls ad saes ha he oly reaso for early exercise is he exisece of uproeced divideds. Roll 15](1977, Geske 9](1979, ad BaroeAdesi ad Whaley 1](1986 worked o he problem of fidig aalyic approximaios for America opios. Joh Hull 11] i he firs ediio of his book, 1989, esablishes wha was o be he mos used mehod o cope wih discree divideds. The mehod works by subracig from he curre asse price, he e prese value of all divideds o occur durig he life of he opio. The reasos for is populariy ad accepace were he facs ha i would preserve he coiuiy of he opio price across he divided payme dae ad ha i could cope wih muliple divideds. Oe ca show ha his formulaio is exac oly if he divided is paid immediaely afer he valuaio dae. O he oher ed of he specrum, Musiela ad Rukowsky 13] (1997 propose a model ha adds he fuure value a mauriy of all divideds paid durig he lifeime of he opio o he srike price. Agai oe ca show ha his formulaio is exac oly if he divided payme happes jus before he opio maures. To balace hese wo las mehods, Bos ad Vadermark 5] (2002 devise a mehod ha divides he divideds i ear ad far ad subracs he ear divideds from he sock price ad adds he far divideds o he srike price. This mehod performs beer ha he previous bu i is o exac, especially i he case of opios o ahemoey. A mehod ha cosiders a coiuous geomeric Browia moio wih jumps a he divided payme daes is aalyzed i deail by Wilmo 20] (1998 by meas of umerical mehods. Berger ad Klei 2](1998 propose a orecombiig biomial ree
6 3 mehod o evaluae opios uder he jump model. Bos e al. 4](2003 devise a mehod ha adjuss he volailiy parameer o correc he subracio mehod saed above. Haug e al. (2003 review exisig mehods performace ad pay special aeio o he problem of egaive prices ha arise wihi he coex of he jump model ad propose a umerical quadraure scheme. Björk 3] (1998 has oe of he cleares descripios of he discree divideds problem for Europea opios ad provides a formula for proporioal divideds. Shreve 16] (2004 also saes he resul for proporioal divideds. Recely, Vellekoop ad Nieuwehuis 19] (2006 describe a modificaio o he biomial ree mehod o accou for discree divideds preservig he crucial recombiig propery. 2 Closed Formula We sar by developig a arbirage argume ha will eable us o address he exisece of discree divideds i a uified approach, irrespecive of he opio ype ad model. Here we resric ourselves o he large se of models ha display he Markov propery. Our argumes are equivale o wha ca be foud i he lieraure, see Björk 3] for a clear ad cocise descripio. Cosider a opio wih a mauriy T o he uderlyig S, whose value a ime 0 is V (S 0, 0. We ow assume ha a uexpeced divided, of size D, is paid a he dae D, wih 0 < D < T. The value of he opio a he mome D is chaged because he uderlyig value has decreased by he size of he divided. More precisely, he opio value chage correspods o he followig differece V = V, D V D, D. (4 D Tha is, he differece bewee he value of he opio akig he uderlyig price jus before ad afer he divided payme. This differece measures he impac of he chage i he opio price wih respec o a discree chage (eiher accoued for or prediced i he value of he uderlyig. From he poi of view of he buyer/seller of such a opio, his chage i value may come as a uexpeced profi or loss, depedig o he specific opio oe cosiders. This profi or loss was o prediced by he hedgig sraegy, or could i be so because ay profis or losses from he hedgig sraegy should, by cosrucio, be refleced o he iiial price of he opio. This iclusio, i ur, would elimiae heir occurrece. We ow cosider he differece V as a payoff profile of a virual derivaive corac. This ew corac, ogeher wih he opio V, for which he exisece of divideds was igored, form a special kid of porfolio whose aggregae value is he value of he opio whe he exisece of he discree divided is cosidered. The special propery of his porfolio is ha oe of is compoes ca exis by hemselves. For Europea syle opios, his special propery is o a cosrai sice every claim i he porfolio has a lifespa from 0 o T. The same is o rue for America syle or barrier opios ha ca cease o exis before ime T. We are ow ready o sae he followig lemma. Lemma 2.1. Le V be radom variables defied o he filered probabiliy space (Ω, F, P, F. Le V be he arbiragefree price of a opio o a sock ha pays a discree divided D a ime D accordig o he policy I A, where A = {ω :he divided is paid}. The, for each ω Ω, ] V D, D (ω = V, D D V (ω + D, D D (ω V, D D (ω I A. (5
7 4 Proof. If ω A, he he divided policy deermies he acual payme of he divided, ad we have V D, D (ω = V D, D D (ω = V D, D (ω. (6 The opposie case, if ω / A, i.e., whe he divided policy deermies ha he divided is o paid, we have Thus we have verified ha (5 holds for each ω Ω. V D, D (ω = V, D D (ω = V D, D (ω. (7 Wih lemma 2.1 we have esablished he value of he derivaive V a ime D as a fucio of S a ime D, i.e., jus before he divided is paid. We ca ow cosider V D, D as a payoff of a claim maurig a D. Furhermore, he uderlyig asse process S, wih 0 < < D is jus he BlackScholes model as i (1 sice here are o divided paymes durig his ime ierval. I his seig, he valuaio of he opio a ime 0, V 0, 0, is jus he discoued expecaio uder he riskeural measure wih he process S give by (1. We ca hus sae he followig corollaries: Corollary 2.1. For Europea syle opios we have V D 0, 0 = ( e r( D 0 E Q 0 V S D (, D + V 0, 0 + e r( D 0 E Q 0 (V ( S D V ( S D ( D, D V ( D, D V S D S D, D I A ] =, D I A ], where E Q 0 X] sads for he expecaio uder he riskeural measure Q, wih respec o he σ algebra F 0, of he radom variable X. Corollary 2.2. For America syle opios we have ] V D 0, 0 = max E Q τ T 0 e r(τ0 Φ D (S τ, 0, D wih ad Φ (S τ Φ D (S τ = ( V S D ( V ( ( (, D + V S D, D V D S D S D if τ < D, D I A if τ = D, ], D = max E Q τ T D e r(τd Φ (S τ, (9 D,T ad Φ(x is he payoff of he opio if he sock price is a x, T D,T is he se of all soppigimes akig values i he ierval ( D, T ad T 0, D he correspodig se for he ierval ( 0, D. Sice Lemma 2.1 does o impose ay codiios o he form of V D D, D, we are allowed o use i several imes o accou for several divided paymes, ieraig bewee he lemma ad he releva corollary for he opio a had. This procedure will be used i he followig secios o obai he pricig formula. (8
8 5 2.1 Geeral Derivaio I his secio we will focus o Europea syle opios. We will develop a geeral approach ad ideify he ecessary codiios for is validiy. I he ex secio, we provide a example of a call opio uder he BlackScholes model which does saisfy he validiy codiios. The correspodig proofs are give i appedix A. As iduced by he lemma above, he approach o he divided problem should sar by argeig he las divided before mauriy, ad he proceed by movig backwards i ime uil he firs divided. Therefore, le here be divideds D i ad payme daes i, wih i = 1,, ad 0 < 1 < < < T. We will keep he oaio S o refer o he sock price a he ime jus before he i h divided i payme bu we will ideify i wih i o lighe oaio, sice hey are equal i he limi. Las Divided Before Mauriy From corollary 2.1 we ca sae ha C 1, 1 = C ( S 1, 1 + e r( 1 E Q 1 (C D, C, I A ], (10 where C sads for he price of he derivaive claim igorig he exisece of he divided D ad C is he price of he same claim bu ackowledgig he exisece of he divided D. I his form, ad for mos models, i is impossible o fid a closed formula soluio for he expecaio above. We hus choose o replace he differece ha i coais by is correspodig Taylor series expasio. The ecessary codiio for he exchage is he followig: Codiio 2.1. Le C, be a fucio ifiiely differeiable wih respec o S, ad le he correspodig ifiie Taylor series expasio be coverge. We hus have, ] E Q 1 (C D, C, I A = E Q (D i ( ] 1 C i S, I A, (11 wih C i referrig o he i h derivaive of he claim price wih respec o S 1. Furhermore, i would be helpful o ierchage he expecaio ad summaio i equaio (11. For his ierchage, he followig codiios have o hold: Codiio 2.2. Le (D i ( C i S, I A φ 1 To be cohere wih he oaio used below, we should wrie C (i isead of C i. The abbreviaed oaio was chose o lighe he formulas below ha make repeaed use of hese fucios.

(12 Havig he covergece propery fulfilled for he series, oe ca ow rucae he series o a give η ha is goig o deped o he specific problem a had. Thus, we proceed wih a rucaed series C 1, 1 =C ( S 1, 1 + e r( 1 η (D i E Q 1 C i ( S, I A ], (13 wih η deermied i ligh of he specific problem a had, based o a crieria of added coribuio of he erms beyod he η erm. From he Las Divided o he Firs From corollary 2.1 ad lemma 2.1 we ca sae ha ( C 1 2, 2 = C S2, 2 + e r( 1 2 (14 ( ] E Q 2 C D 1, 1 C (S 1, 1 I A1, 1 where C sads for he price of he same derivaive claim igorig he exisece of he divided D 1, ad C 1, is price, ackowledgig ha fac. Agai, we would like o replace he differece by is correspodig Taylor series expasio. Cosequely, we have o impose ha C also fulfills codiio 2.1. Codiio 2.3. Le C, 1 1 ad le he correspodig ifiie Taylor series expasio be coverge. We he ge ( E Q 2 C 1 E Q (D 1 j 2 j! j=1 be a fucio ifiiely differeiable wih respec o S 1 D 1, 1 C 1 C j ( S, 1 1 ], 1 I A1 = (15 I A1.

We ca ow ierpre he coribuio of each erm o he fial resul. The firs erm ses he sarig poi as a call assumig o divideds. The firs wo summaios accou for he impac of he exisece of he divideds D ad D 1. The hird measures he combied effec of boh divideds. Oe ca also oice ha he umber of erms doubles wih each ew divided ha is added. Oe divided yielded wo erms ad wo divideds yielded four erms. The discou facor applied o each erm correspods o he dae of he las divided payme cosidered by ha erm. For furher divideds, he same procedure applies. 2.2 Call uder he Black Scholes Model I his secio we will apply he geeral approach o he case of a Europea call uder he Black Scholes model. Before we sar derivig he formula we cosider a simplificaio of he problems (13 ad (16. If he ses A i have a form differe from Ω, i.e., he divideds are paid i all saes of he world, equaio (13 becomes much more complex ad equaio (16 is ceraily oo complex o solve i closed form. Keepig formulas as simple as possible is he a exra argume i favor of assumig A i = Ω, addig o hose discussed i secio 1.2. Uforuaely, his assumpio raises a furher exra problem ulike hose discussed i secio 1.2. Eve hough he Black Scholes model does
11 { ideed saisfy he codiios deermied i secio 2.1 if A i = ω : S > D i }, i fails o do so if i A i = Ω. The proofs are leghy ad ca be foud i appedix A. All proofs rely o he resuls by Esrella 7], who showed ha a Taylor series expasio of he Black Scholes formula, wih respec o he sock price S, coverges for a radius { of S iself. } Sill, give he fac ha he se ω : S D i has a very small probabiliy i almos all i realisic scearios, we believe ha he meioed simplificaio is a accepable compromise. As a less radical } simplificaio, we cosider also he possibiliy of keepig oly A = {ω : S > D wih regard o he divided payme closes o mauriy. This modificaio ca be applied by replacig formula (20 below by he formulas (57 ad (58 i appedix C. I fac, i he case of oly oe divided payme, his aleraive keeps he problem (13 uchaged ad hus is o subjec o ay of he argumes developed above. Wih he referred simplificaio, A i = Ω, he problem (16 is reduced o C 1, = C, + (17 η e r( (D i E Q C ( ] i S, + η 1 e r( 1 j=1 η 1 e r( Formulas ad Resuls j=1 (D 1 j j! (D 1 j j!

A sepbysep derivaio of formula (33 ca be foud i appedix B. 2.3 The Greeks A closed formula for he derivaive 2 of he opio price of arbirary order is a sraighforward applicaio of he chai rule.

Wih respec o he call opio specificaios, we cosider hree differe opios, all wih seve years mauriy, wih srikes of 70, 100 ad 130. The calculaios repored i Table 1 were performed akig a secod order approximaio for each of he divided paymes, i.e., η 1,..., η 7 = 2. This approximaio order proved o be very effecive i his case, producig errors of 0.01 i he wors cases whe compared o he resuls repored i Vellekoop ad Nieuwehuis 19].

I he simples case of oly oe divided payme uil mauriy, Table 2 would be much differe. The call wih o divideds plus wo derivaives would yield a oal of oly hree erms. Naurally, oe should expec ha differe cases may require differe orders of approximaio. Problems wih larger idividual divideds, wih divideds very close o mauriy or i he presece of very low volailiies should require a higher approximaio order. The issue a sake is how smooh he fucio beig approximaed is  he smooher he fucio he lower he required approximaio order. 4 Coclusio Deparig from he well kow behavior of he opio price a he divided payme dae, we approximae i by Taylor series expasio ad successfully maipulae i o arrive a a closed form pricig formula.

The procedure is described for opios o socks wih up o wo divided paymes ad is applied o a example wih seve divided paymes. Formulas for more divided paymes may be developed usig he same procedure. By he same meas we also derive he derivaives, of ay order, of he opio price wih respec o he uderlyig asse; ad from hose he remaiig derivaives wih respec o oher parameers i he model. The resuls show ha a low approximaio order is eough o aai reasoable resuls i mos problems observed i pracice. The exesio of his resuls o oher models ha he Black Scholes model is lef for fuure research. Tha is he case also for he exesio of his approach o muliasse opios. Appedices A Codiio s Verificaio Codiios Verificaio Codiio 2.1 is easily saisfied bu i his a he limiaios ha his mehod will have. I reads: Le C, be a fucio ifiiely differeiable o S, ad le he correspodig ifiie Taylor series expasio be coverge. Proof. From equaio (18 oe ca see ha he call price C, is he differece of producs of ifiiely differeiable fucios if < T ad hus saisfies he codiio. If = T, he N(x urs io a sep fucio ad hus is o loger differeiable. Thus, he firs codiio deermies ha S R +. The covergece of C, was proved by Esrella 7] for shifs D such ha S < D < S. Thus, he ierval o which he fucio is differeiable ad whose series is coverge is S < D < S, (37 which icludes he releva ierval for divided shifs 0, S. Codiio 2.2 reads: le ( (D i C i S, D ], ad may E Q 1 I A φ coverge uiformly o ay ierval (a, b S, S ( ] (D i C i S, I A or ( ] EQ (D i 1 C i S, I A be

The covergece of C, has already bee esablished i (37 ad so we oly eed o verify he covergece properies of I A ad φ. Fucio I A is rivially coverge eiher o D < S or o D > S. Wih respec o φ, i is well kow ha i he Black Scholes model, he disribuio of S is logormal ad hus φ is he composiio of log ad he ormal probabiliy desiy fucio. Apar from he cosas, he ormal desiy exp { (x µ 2 /(2σ 2 } / 2πσ ca by described as he successive composiio of e x ad x 2. Boh fucios are coverge everywhere, so is he ormal desiy. The composiio wih log resrics he covergece radius o ha of he log fucio, i.e., (0, 2S. I erms of shifs D wih respec o S we have S < D < S. Thus o resricios mus be imposed o he domai of covergece foud i (37. For he fial saeme of he codiio, i suffices o show ha E Q ( ] (D i 1 C i S, I A is fiie. Sice he series ( (D i C i S, coverges o C D, C, ad C, is fiie for every S as log as < T, he codiio is verified. Fially, codiio 2.3 saes: le C, 1 be a fucio ifiiely differeiable o S 1 1 ad le he correspodig ifiie Taylor series expasio be coverge. Proof. The differeiabiliy of( C is deermied by ha of C, proved above wih respec o codiio 2.1, ad (Di E Q 1 C i S, I A ]. For he differeiabiliy of he las, we oe, by (31, ( ha i is deermied by ha of CI i A S,, which is saisfied by way of (57 ad (58.

The cosa does o affec he covergece of C i I A. The covergece of CI i A is assured by he same argumes ha yield he covergece of he call price fucio foud i Esrella 7]. Followig he same reasoig, we ake oe specific derivaive o perform he aalysis, i = 3, sice i carries he same covergece propery of ay oher derivaive. We oe he ha CI 3 A is a produc of cosas, ψ 1, ψ 2 ad of divisio by S 3. Sice he divisio ad he cosas do o aler he covergece, we eed o check he fucios ψ 1 ad ψ 2. Agai, we have muliplicaive cosas ad he followig facors ha deped o S: N (d ad H h (d. Boh of he facors ca be obaied by successive composiio of some or all of he fucios e x, x 2 ad log(x ad hus he covergece radius shall be he iersecio of he covergece radius of all of hese fucios. Sice he expoeial ad he square fucios are coverge everywhere, he radius of covergece of CI i A is deermied by he covergece of log(x ad ha is x or, i ( our case, S. The composiio of C i 1 I A wih f S = e iσ2 ( 1 S 1 does o chage he ( ( 1 ( covergece radius sice log f = log S 1 iσ 2 ( 1 ad hus log S 1 is sill 1 he fucio ha deermies he covergece ierval. Furhermore, he shifs D 1 e iσ2 ( 1 are smaller ha D 1 for ay i. Thus, we ca ake he followig covergece ierval for he Taylor series expasio of CI i A for all i, S < D 1 < S 1. (41 1 Thus, he fulfillme of codiios ecessary for he developme of a closed formula have redered he followig resricios o he size of divideds: S < D < S ad S < D 1 < S 1. 1 These resricios overlap wih he divided payme policy ha deermies divided paymes if 0 D < S or 0 D 1 < S ad hus are fulfilled by cosrucio. 1
