Abstract
The purpose of this thesis is to estimate the parameters in a stochastic
volatility model in order to hedge derivatives based on underlying assets
under the real probabilities as opposed to the standard method of esti-
mating them under the risk neutral probabilities. We choose a common
and reasonable but not to complex model of stock prices and other traded
nancial assets, the Heston model, as we don't want to use a model that
is irrelevant for practical applications or so complex as to make it compu-
tationally and theoretically too burdensome. We use data simulated from
the model to avoid the problem that market prices do not t the Heston
model perfectly.
