Titel: Pricing quanto long-term warrants on risky bonds. (Examensarbete)


We price a warrant on a basket of credit-risky bonds quoted in different currencies with a payoff submitted to a quanto condition. The warrant is a long-term call option with an Asian tail. We use an appropriate long-term one-factor (diffusion) interest rate model, calibrated using the Moment Matching Method and the General Method of Moments and model the default risk of the bond issuers with an appropriate Poisson random time.
Finally, we suggest an algorithm able to price any warrant as defined above, through Monte Carlo simulating the exchange rates, the interest rates and the default processes.
