dc.description.abstract Presents the results of an investigation into the cost of dynamic hedging, from the perspective of a hypothetical South African life office that has issued a guaranteed equity bond. The life office wishes to hedge its liability either statically or dynamically. The terms static hedge and dynamic hedge are defined. It is uncertain whether the life office could create a static hedge asset at lower cost than the investment bank's asking price. This is the problem addressed by the thesis: the cost of in-house dynamic hedging within a specified financial environment and subject to a specified risk-return preference function. The factors that influence the dynamic hedge cost are discussed in detail. The market and legislative environment is examined and representative models are defined. The risk-return preference function is defined. The simulation approach and the factors that are ignored in the simulation are presented. The results are evaluated. Suggestions are made. en
