An installment option is a European option in which the premium, instead of being paid up-front, is paid in a series of installments. If all installments are paid the holder receives the exercise value, but the holder has the right to terminate payments on any payment date, in which case the option lapses with no further payments on either side. We discuss pricing and risk management for these options, in particular the use of static hedges to obtain both no-arbitrage pricing bounds and very effective hedging strategies with almost no vega risk.
