Call and put options provide a standard tool for hedging exposure to foreseeable risk. The pricing of options is inherently coupled to the price of the underlying asset, hence a model for pricing options must couple innately to the model for the underlying asset price. This chapter details option pricing based upon a so-called double subordination price model for the asset. Subordination models offer the ability to include more of the stylized facts of asset prices, increasing the accuracy of option prices. This chapter details the application of a double subordinated model to capture the mean, variance, skewness, and kurtosis, as well as intrinsic time features of the return process for one of the optimized domestic REIT portfolios.
