Abstract

We introduce the beta stochastic volatility model and discuss empirical features of this model and its calibration. This model is appealing because, first, its parameters can be easily understood and calibrated and, second, it produces steeper forward skews, compared to traditional stochastic volatility models.

Keywords: beta stochastic volatility, stochastic volatility, volatility skew, local stochastic volatility

JEL Classification: C00, G00
