Toal porfolio loss L = 1 n n 1 Rec i = L = 1 n 1 R n 1 {τi <} 1 {τi <} i=1 i=1 where he second equaliy holds for a fla recovery rae R. A ime, he Ousanding Noional is N = 1 L / 1 R. The Proecion Leg pays, a defaul of one name in he index, he corresponding loss. A τ i : dl τ i = 1 R 1/n from sar dae o T M or unil all names defaul. 2

We use he noaion Π X, s = E X F s. When s =, we omi he argumen s wriing simply Π X. The Payer Forward Index saring a and lasing unil T M has a price Π I,T M K := E I,T M K F := E P ro,t M P rem,t M Subsiuing he payoffs, one sees ha he Index value does no depend on he Loss disribuion bu only on he Expeced Loss E L T a differen mauriies.

However, he opion buyer would give away proecion from incepion 0 o mauriy. In order o arac invesors, sandard Credi Index Opion payoff includes he paymen of he losses from he opion incepion o as well fron end proecion F = D, L Π F = E D, L F. 7
9 Copyrigh 2008 Damiano Brigo and Massimo Morini The rough approach Noarmageddon arbiragefree measure for credi index opions In he roughes approach, he opion payoff in case of exercise Π I,T M K + F = Π S,T M K + F is improperly evaluaed as + should include all pars + E D, Π S,T M K F +E F and hen expressing he 1s comp. hrough a sd Black formula Π Black, K, σ,t M TA +Π S,T M F F Pedersen 2003 properly includes he fronend proecion ino he opion and hrough numerical inegraion ges o an improved Black formula., 8

I is naural o give a new spread definiion, seing o zero Π Ĩ,T M This leads o he LossAdjused Marke Index Spread S,T M = Π P ro,t M + Π F /Π K. ha allows o wrie he opion price as E D, Π ST A,T M + K F.

11 Copyrigh 2008 Damiano Brigo and Massimo Morini Noarmageddon arbiragefree measure for credi index opions The hree flaws of he Sandard Formula 1. The definiion of S,T M Π = is valid only when he denominaor M j=a+1 is differen from zero. Since Π defaulable asses, i can go o zero. 2. When Π E D, T j α j 1 L T j F 1 R is he price of a porfolio of = 0 he pricing formula 1 is undefined, and in his scenario S,T M does no se he value of he adjused index o zero. 3. If we worked condiionally on Π > 0, he resuling survival measure would no be equivalen o he sandard riskneural measure. 10
12 Copyrigh 2008 Damiano Brigo and Massimo Morini Noarmageddon arbiragefree measure for credi index opions Subfilraion Pricing wihou armageddon We adap a echnique used earlier by Jamshidian 2004 and Brigo 2005 for single name CDS opions, making use of a subfilraion srucure, separaing defaul free informaion from informaion on he defaul even. This is based on he JeanblancRukowski JR filraionswiching formula. To effecively use JR in index opions conex, define ˆτ = max τ 1, τ 2,..., τ n and define a new filraion Ĥ such ha F = ˆ J Ĥ, ˆ J = σ {ˆτ > u}, u, so ha Ĥ excludes informaion on he porfolio armageddon even. 11
13 Copyrigh 2008 Damiano Brigo and Massimo Morini Define Noarmageddon arbiragefree measure for credi index opions A DV01 γ wihou Armageddon ˆΠ := E Ĥ. Exploiing = 1 {ˆτ>}, which is necessary o be able o apply he JRype formula wr he filraion H Π = E = Q F = 1 {ˆτ>} ˆΠ ˆτ > Ĥ Q 1 {ˆτ>} E ˆτ > Ĥ Ĥ. 2 The quaniy ˆΠ is never null, and we will see ha i is wha we need for an effecive definiion of he Index Spread and of an equivalen pricing measure for Index Opions. 12
14 Copyrigh 2008 Damiano Brigo and Massimo Morini Noarmageddon arbiragefree measure for credi index opions The Arbiragefree Index Spread Applying a JR ype formula o he loss adjused index does no work, since he necessary condiion does no hold: 1 {ˆτ>} Ĩ,T M Ĩ,T M Indeed, he LossAdjused index, differenly from, is never null even in case ˆτ we receive fron end proecion. Wrie hen E Y T F = E 1 {ˆτ } Y T F + E 1{ˆτ>} Y T F = 1 {ˆτ } E Y T 1 {ˆτ>} σ ˆτ Ĥ + E Q ˆτ > Ĥ 1 {ˆτ>} Y T Ĥ The 1s componen corresponds o he value when we know ha all defauls have already happened, and we know he exac armageddon ime. 13

In a LossAdjused porfolio we canno define in all scenarios he equilibrium spread as he value of he spread zeroing he index value, as here are always scenarios where he index is non zero, regardless of he spread. + 14
16 Copyrigh 2008 Damiano Brigo and Massimo Morini Noarmageddon arbiragefree measure for credi index opions The Arbiragefree Index Spread The financially meaningful definiion of he Index Spread considers he level of K seing he Index value o 0 in all scenarios where some names survive unil mauriy. Only in such scenarios he payoff acually depends on K. Se o 0 only he firs componen of he index value 3, Q 1 {ˆτ>} {ˆΠ ˆτ > Ĥ P ro,t M ˆΠ P rem,t M K } + E 1 {ˆτ>TA }F Ĥ, which is he price of an armageddonknock ou radable asse. We obain he following definiion of he equilibrium Arbiragefree Index Spread Ŝ,T M = ˆΠ P ro,t M + E 1 {ˆτ>TA }F Ĥ / ˆΠ 4 This definiion of he index spread is boh regular, since ˆΠ is bounded away from zero, and has a reasonable financial meaning. 15

18 Copyrigh 2008 Damiano Brigo and Massimo Morini The numeraire Noarmageddon arbiragefree measure for credi index opions For ha we need a change of measure, solving also Problem 3. echnically demanding, bu he preceding analysis helps.
