Learning outcomes

The course offers an introduction to arbitrage theory and its applications to financial derivatives pricing in discrete and continuous time.

Program

1. Discrete market models

Uniperiod models: binomial and general. Multiperiod models: binomial and general.
Financial portfolios, the principle of non-arbitrage.
Derivatives: definition, examples, properties.
Absence of arbitrage.
Discrete-time martingale processes
Equivalent martingale measures and risk neutrality.
Numeraire
Replicable securities and valuation of derivatives
Completeness of the markets
The return of risky securities
The two fundamental asset pricing theorems

2. Market models in continuous time

Transition from discret to continuous times.
Geometric Brownian motion and modeling of empirical data
Risk quantification with a model
Ito Integral Ito, quadratic variation / covariation,
stochastic differential equations, characterization of martingales
Ito Lemma
Market model with n + 1 assets and m Brownian motions
Self-financing portfolios
Absence of arbitrage
Girsanov's theorem
Equivalent martingale measure
Replicability and pricing of derivatives
Completeness and EDP for the price function of a derivative
Delta hedging
Black and Scholes model
Formula for the price of call and put options

Useful material on the moodle page of the course: slides of the lessons, link to the notes on OneNote, exercises

Important knowledge for a successful learning: matrix calculations, linear systems, real functions of one or more real variables (in particular: continuous functions, composition of functions, partial derivatives), basic concepts of financial mathematics (interest rate, return of an investment, difference between bonds and shares of a firm), fundamental concepts of probability theory (sigma algebra, random variables, expected values, covariance, space L ^ 2 of rv, independence, conditional probabilities and expected values, equivalent probability measures, probability density, distribution function, Gaussian law, convergence in distribution, in probability, in L ^ 2, almost certain equality), basic concepts on stochastic processes (martingale, Brownian motion)

Preparatory courses: Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Stochastic processes

Skills necessary for successful learning: willingness and ability to conduct logical reasoning in a rigorous way, and to motivate each step and the conclusions

Organization of teaching activities: lessons, exercises

Examination Methods

During the course, verification quizzes will be carried out, the evaluation of which can attribute a bonus of up to 3 points that can be added to the final exam grade. Those who did not take any quiz during the course must notify me one month before the exam in which they intend to participate, and must compulsorily carry out a homework by delivering the solutions within 9 days before the exam.

The final exam consists of a written test. Also an oral examination could be compulsory, in case the teacher needs for specific insights

The written test consists of practical exercises and theoretical questions, and can cover the whole programme of the course. Using notes or books or similar material during the test is forbidden

The exam is not passed if the mark in the written test is less than 18/30.

In case of oral exam, the mark may become insufficient if for instance inconsistencies are found with what is written, or if the competence of the student is not sufficient. The mark score may increase if parts of exercises have not been evaluated for doubt of interpretation. Requests for further questions to increase the score are not accepted. The adequacy of requesting the necessary clarifications will be established only by the teacher.

Characteristics of the expected performance. The student is required to demonstrate a critical and in-depth knowledge of the topics covered in the course. The concepts must not be exposed mechanically but in a reasoned way, the student is expected to be able to recognize when a formula obtained during the lesson for a specific example is not appropriate for the case she has to deal with. Connections among different parts of the program may be required and advanced level exercises can be (marginally) proposed.
The concise but comprehensive exposure, the rigor, the direct pointing towards the core of the matter will be particularly appreciated. Vague, inaccurate, poorly detailed or incorrect answers will be penalized

Students not attending the lectures: the examination methods are not differentiated between attending and non-attending students

For further details about the verification quizzes and the exam see the forum at the moodle page

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE

Type D and Type F activities

Nei piani didattici di ciascun Corso di studio è previsto l’obbligo di conseguire un certo numero di crediti formativi mediante attività a scelta (chiamate anche "di tipologia D e F").

Oltre che in insegnamenti previsti nei piani didattici di altri corsi di studio e in certificazioni linguistiche o informatiche secondo quanto specificato nei regolamenti di ciascun corso, tali attività possono consistere anche in iniziative extracurriculari di contenuto vario, quali ad esempio la partecipazione a un seminario o a un ciclo di seminari, la frequenza di laboratori didattici, lo svolgimento di project work, stage aggiuntivo, eccetera.

Come per ogni altra attività a scelta, è necessario che anche queste non costituiscano un duplicato di conoscenze e competenze già acquisite dallo studente.

Quelle elencate in questa pagina sono le iniziative extracurriculari che sono state approvate dal Consiglio della Scuola di Economia e Management e quindi consentono a chi vi partecipa l'acquisizione dei CFU specificati, alle condizioni riportate nelle pagine di dettaglio di ciascuna iniziativa.

Si ricorda in proposito che:
- tutte queste iniziative richiedono, per l'acquisizione dei relativi CFU, il superamento di una prova di verifica delle competenze acquisite, secondo le indicazioni contenute nella sezione "Modalità d'esame" della singola attività;
- lo studente è tenuto a inserire nel proprio piano degli studi l'attività prescelta e a iscriversi all'appello appositamente creato per la verbalizzazione, la cui data viene stabilita dal docente di riferimento e pubblicata nella sezione "Modalità d'esame" della singola attività.

COMPETENZE TRASVERSALI
Scopri i percorsi formativi promossi dal  Teaching and learning centre dell'Ateneo, destinati agli studenti iscritti ai corsi di laurea, volti alla promozione delle competenze trasversali: https://talc.univr.it/it/competenze-trasversali


ATTENZIONE: Per essere ammessi a sostenere una qualsiasi attività didattica, inlcuse quelle a scelta, è necessario essere iscritti all'anno di corso in cui essa viene offerta. Si raccomanda, pertanto, ai laureandi delle sessioni di dicembre e aprile di NON svolgere attività extracurriculari del nuovo anno accademico, cui loro non risultano iscritti, essendo tali sessioni di laurea con validità riferita all'anno accademico precedente. Quindi, per attività svolte in un anno accademico cui non si è iscritti, non si potrà dar luogo a riconoscimento di CFU.
