Least-Squares Monte Carlo Simulation for Time Value of Options and Guarantees Calculation

Oskar Sokoli?ski


Article presents an application of least-squares Monte Carlo concept to calculation of Time Value of Options and Guarantees - Market Consistent Embedded Value component. Previously used in options' valuation method proved to be an effective and time-saving tool. Paper summarizes analysis performed on an theoretical Open Pension Fund portfolio (based on market average data).
