If IE( 4 ) = ∞, σ 2 < ∞ (and further regularity conditions are satisfied), the limit distribution consists of a stable random variable multiplied by a constant vector, see Davis & Resnick (1986) and Embrechts et al.

25) But the left-hand side is V˜ (t). This finding explains the specification of the time-variant barrier. 26) 51 3 A Simple Approach to Country Risk Under the T-forward measure the barrier is no longer time-variant! 27) T With respect to a Brownian motion with drift starting at zero, the probability of the process staying above a barrier has been calculated already. 470] it turns out that the default probability under the T-forward measure is as stated in the proposition. Multiplying the expected payoff with B(0, T ) yields the fair value.
