We apply quasi-Monte Carlo methods to the pricing of derivatives on realised variance of an index under the benchmark approach. The resulting integration problem is shown to depend on the joint density of the realised variance of the index and t he terminal value of the index. Employing a transformation mapping for this joint density to the unit square reduces the difficulty of the resulting integration problem. The quasi-Monte Carlo methods compare favourably to Monte Carlo methods when applied to the given problem.

Quasi-Monte Carlo methods are used to approximate integrals of high dimensionality. However, if the problem under consideration is of unbounded dimensionality, it is not obvious if one can apply quasi-Monte Carlo methods at all. We introduce a hybrid approach combining quasi-Monte Carlo and Monte Carlo methods and apply it to a finance problem of unbounded dimensionality. We find that this hybrid approach improves on a Monte Carlo approach.
