In this paper, we hypothesize that institutional investor variable is a proxy for some systematic risk factors, which should be incorporated into the asset-pricing model. Mimicking portfolio for institutional ownership, called IMI (Institutional minus Individual), is constructed. Including IMI to the Carhart's 4-factor model captures the common variations in returns better than all other models that are tested. Consistent with the literature, the new 5-factor model improves mispricing mostly in portfolios including stocks with the lowest and the highest institutional ownership. Empirical findings demonstrate that IMI most likely proxies for noise-trader risk.

Credit risk modeling and credit default swap pricing under variance gamma process
Anar, Hatice; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Financial Mathematics (2008)
In this thesis, the structural model in credit risk and the credit derivatives is studied under both Black-Scholes setting and Variance Gamma (VG) setting. Using a Variance Gamma process, the distribution of the firm value process becomes asymmetric and leptokurtic. Also, the jump structure of VG processes allows random default times of the reference entities. Among structural models, the most emphasis is made on the Black-Cox model by building a relation between the survival probabilities of the Black-Cox ...
On forward interest rate models : via random fields and Markov jump processes
Altay, Sühan; Körezlioğlu, Hayri; Department of Financial Mathematics (2007)
The essence of the interest rate modeling by using Heath-Jarrow-Morton framework is to find the drift condition of the instantaneous forward rate dynamics so that the entire term structure is arbitrage free. In this study, instantaneous forward interest rates are modeled using random fields and Markov Jump processes and the drift conditions of the forward rate dynamics are given. Moreover, the methodology presented in this study is extended to certain financial settings and instruments such as multi-country...
Stochastic volatility, a new approach for vasicek model with stochastic volatility
Zeytun, Serkan; Hayfavi, Azize; Department of Financial Mathematics (2005)
In the original Vasicek model interest rates are calculated assuming that volatility remains constant over the period of analysis. In this study, we constructed a stochastic volatility model for interest rates. In our model we assumed not only that interest rate process but also the volatility process for interest rates follows the mean-reverting Vasicek model. We derived the density function for the stochastic element of the interest rate process and reduced this density function to a series form. The para...
Modelling and implementation of local volatility surfaces
Animoku, Abdulwahab; Yolcu Okur, Yeliz; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Financial Mathematics (2014)
In this thesis, Dupire local volatility model is studied in details as a means of modeling the volatility structure of a financial asset. In this respect, several forms of local volatility equations have been derived: Dupire's local volatility, local volatility as conditional expectation, and local volatility as a function of implied volatility. We have proven the main results of local volatility model discussed in the literature in details. In addition, we have also proven the local volatility model under ...
Dynamic complex hedging and portfolio optimization in additive markets
Polat, Onur; Hayfavi, Azize; Department of Financial Mathematics (2009)
In this study, the geometric Additive market models are considered. In general, these market models are incomplete, that means: the perfect replication of derivatives, in the usual sense, is not possible. In this study, it is shown that the market can be completed by new artificial assets which are called “power-jump assets” based on the power-jump processes of the underlying Additive process. Then, the hedging portfolio for claims whose payoff function depends on the prices of the stock and the power-jump ...
