Abstract:Nowadays the global inflation market enables pension funds to offer real pensions to their schemes’ participants. Real pensions have a preference over their nominal counterparts because they are unaffected by unfortunate inflationary movements. Inflation linked bonds and inflation derivatives provide the required solutions that secure buying power of money over time horizons that are unrivaled in length. By covering topics such as inflation measurement and inflation modeling this thesis is especially written for those who want to know more about inflation derivatives. Inflation derivatives greatly enhance investment portfolios of pension funds. However, due to no standardized pricing models, a pension fund must have an objective pricing model for inflation derivatives. This thesis provides a detailed methodology covering all the relevant factors on pricing inflation swaptions, which gives insight in the level of complexity of an appropriate pricing model for inflation derivatives.
