This paper provides the detailed technical proofs for all theorems in Jordan and Huang (2013). In that paper, semi-parametric upper bounds are derived for European call options. The first three distributions of the underlying return distribution, including skewness, are specifically accounted for. The bounds are then applied to find upper bounds for (1) Short Variance Swaps and (2) the Variance Risk Premium.
