Applied stochastic models in business and industry vol:17 issue:2 pages:149-164
In this paper we present an efficient methodology for approximating the distribution function of the net present value of a series of cash-flows, when discounting is presented by a stochastic differential equation as in the Vasicek model and in the Ho-Lee model. Upper and lower bounds in convexity order are obtained. The high accuracy of the method is illustrated for cash-flows for which no analytical results are available.
