Creating Synthetic Forwards l Payoff (in PV terms) from the forward contract: PV(S T – F 0 ) = PV(S T ) – F 0 e -rT = PV(S T ) – S 0 l Payoff (in PV terms) from the synthetic forward contract: p – c + PV(S T – K) = p – c + PV(S T ) – Ke -rT l Equalize the payoffs and rearrange: p+S 0 = Ke -rT + c l Recognize the put-call parity!

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
