Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a new technique for calibrating local volatility extensions of arbitrary multi-factor stochastic volatility models to market smiles. Although approximate, this technique is both fast and accurate. The procedure is illustrated with the Bergomi variance curve model and the $2$-factor log-normal model.

Keywords: Bergomi's model, $2$-factor log-normal, Malliavin's calculus, Markovian projection
