Static hedging under time-homogeneous diffusions

Abstract

We consider the problem of semistatic hedging of a single barrier option in a model where the underlying is a time-homogeneous diffusion, possibly running on an independent stochastic clock. The main result of the paper is an analytic expression for the payoff of a European-type contingent claim, which has the same price as the barrier option up to hitting the barrier. We then consider some examples, such as the Black-Scholes, constant elasticity of variance, and zero-correlation SABR models. Finally, we investigate an approximation of the static hedge with options of at most two different strikes.
