Estimating risks of option books using neural-SDE market models

In this paper, we examine the capacity of an arbitrage-free neural-SDE market model to produce realistic scenarios for the joint dynamics of multiple European options on a single underlying. We subsequently demonstrate its use as a risk simulation engine for option portfolios. Through backtesting analysis, we show that our models are more computationally efficient and accurate for evaluating the Value-at-Risk (VaR) of op- tion portfolios, with better coverage performance and less procyclicality than standard filtered historical simulation approaches.
