Project #74873 - Finance derivatives

1.)    What is a collar strategy and how does it work?

2.)    Construct a collar strategy with at-the-money calls and at-the-money puts using the historical data in case Exhibit 3. Backtest what would have been the growth in value of a $1 invested from the start of December 1990 to the end of December 2007 following this strategy. See case Exhibit 2 for details on a collar strategy. Plot it against the monthly growth in value of $1 in the HFRX EH: Equity Market Neutral Index (HFRI EH), the S&P 500 Index, and in one-month Treasury bills (T-bills). What do you conclude? What would have been the Sharpe ratio of this strategy?

3.)    Now do the same but with a collar strategy with OTM calls (with strikes equal to 105% of the current value of the S&P 500 Index) and OTM puts (with strikes equal to 95% of the current value of the S&P 500 Index). What would have been the growth in the value of $1 following this strategy? And what would have been the Sharpe ratio?

4.)    Can you get a fixed-strike rule for the “moneyness” of the call and put options on the collar strategy so you can match the growth in the value of $1 experienced by the Fairfield Guard hedge fund? A fixed-strike rule means that you should keep the moneyness (the percentage that makes the strikes for the call and put options to be OTM) held constant over time.

5.)    Hint: Don’t hesitate to think outside the box.
