Webinar Recording:
Construction of Volatility Surface for Commodity Futures

Multi-factor lognormal models such as Gabillon and Smith-Schwartz ignore the effects of volatility smiles commonly observed in the options markets. We present a practical, robust method for extending classical lognormal models to incorporate volatility smiles.
