AB We explore the pricing of compound derivatives under the newly introduced conjugate-power Dagum distribution. Assuming a discrete-time multiplicative conjugate-power Dagum random walk, we first provide an alternative derivation of the price of a married put based on a change of measure, which is helpful for the pricing of compound options. Then, we apply these results to obtain the equivalent of the Roll-Geske-Whaley formula for the pricing of American options in presence of one known discrete dividend under this alternative distribution.
