A Multi-Currency Model with FX Volatility Skew

The paper develops a multi-currency model with FX skew for power-reverse dual-currency (PRDC) swaps, with a particular emphasis on model calibration to FX options across different maturities and strikes. New theoretical results on locally-optimal Markovian projections are obtained. When combined with powerful skew averaging techniques, a fast and robust calibration method is developed. The impact of the FX skew on cancellable and knockout PRDC swaps is analyzed.
