© 2014 Elsevier B.V. This paper investigates the pricing and hedging of variance swaps under a 3/2 volatility model using explicit formulae. Pricing and hedging is performed under the benchmark approach, which only requires the existence of the numéraire portfolio. The growth optimal portfolio is used as numéraire together with the real world probability measure as pricing measure. This real world pricing concept provides minimal prices for variance swaps even when an equivalent risk neutral probability measure does not exist.
