Autumn School in Financial Mathematics 2019 Schedule

7 Oct, 2019

10 : 00 AM - 06 : 00 PM Room SMT.02

Algorithmic Differentiation for Monte-Carlo Simulations and Applications in Computational Finance (MVA, Portfolio Risk, Hedging). Interest Rate Models and the Hedging of Interest Rate Derivatives

The calculation of Portfolio Risk and xVAs like Margin Valuation Adjustments are important and demanding applications in mathematical finance. They require complex models and advanced numerical methods.

We will give a hands-on introduction into Algorithmic Differentiation for Monte-Carlo Simulations. The algorithm is closely related to the backpropagation algorithm used to train neural networks (DNN). We discuss some special applications like Bermudan Options, American Monte-Carlo, Margin Valuation Adjustment and the Hedging of Derivative using Interest Rate Models.

A Pricing Framework for Valuation Adjustments

The financial crisis started in 2007 has shown that any pricing framework must include from the very beginning the possibility of default of any market player. As a consequence derivative valuation and risk analysis have moved from exotic derivatives managed on simple single-asset classes to simple derivatives embedding credit risk and new, or pre-viously neglected, types of complex and interconnected non-linear effects.

By following the developments of recent literature, an arbitrage-free valuation frame-work is developed for bilateral counterparty risk adjustments, inclusive of wrong-wayand contagion risks, collateralization and funding costs.
