Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as online seminars or as online and in person. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, current restrictions mean in-person seminars are only open to members of the LSE community (those with a valid LSE ID card).

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom.

About this event

This paper proposes to build "implied stochastic volatility models" designed to fit option-implied volatility data, and implements a method to construct such models. The method is based on explicitly linking shape characteristics of the implied volatility surface to the specification of the stochastic volatility model. We propose and implement parametric and nonparametric versions of implied stochastic volatility models

STICERD Econometrics seminars are held on Thursdays in term time at 14.00-15.30, ONLINE, unless specified otherwise.

Seminar organisers: Professor Tai Otsu and Dr. Vassilis Hajivassiliou.
