Title: The value of a liability cash flow in discrete time subject to capital requirements
Authors: Filip Lindskog - Stockholm University (Sweden) [presenting]
Abstract: The aim is to define the market-consistent value of a liability cash flow in discrete time subject to repeated capital requirements, and explore its properties. Our multi-period market-consistent valuation approach is based on defining a criterion for selecting a static replicating portfolio and defining the value of the residual liability, whose cash flow is the difference between the original liability cash flow and that of the replicating portfolio. The value of the residual cash flow is obtained as a solution to a backward recursion that is implied by the procedure for financing the repeated capital requirements, and no-arbitrage arguments. We show that the liability value resulting from no-arbitrage pricing of the dividends to capital providers may be expressed as a multi-period cost-of- capital valuation. Explicit valuation formulas are obtained under Gaussian model assumptions.
