Local Risk-Minimization for Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard Models with Volatility Risk Premium

Research Article


We derive representations of locally risk-minimizing strategies of call and put options for Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard models: jump type stochastic volatility models whose squared volatility process is given by a non-Gaussian Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process. The general form of Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard models includes two parameters: volatility risk premium β and leverage effect ρ. Arai and Suzuki (Local risk minimization for Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard models. submitted. Available at dealt with the same problem under constraint \(\beta = -\frac{1} {2}\). In this paper, we relax the restriction on β; and restrict ρ to 0 instead. We introduce a Malliavin calculus under the minimal martingale measure to solve the problem.
