Minimal variance hedging in multicurve interest rate modeling

  • Markus Hess


We consider minimal variance hedging in a pure-jump multicurve interest rate model. In the first part, we derive arithmetic multifactor martingale representations for the spread, OIS, and LIBOR rate, which are bounded from below by a real-valued constant. In the second part, we investigate minimal variance hedging and provide a closed-form formula for the related minimal variance portfolio. We apply this result to several examples covering both replicable and nonreplicable claims. We conclude the paper with a consideration of delta hedging.
