Introduction On Quantile Hedging The PDE Characterization

Consider a financial market with a bond B(·) = 1 and d stocks X = (X1 , · · · , Xd ) which satisfy for i = 1; · · · d,   P dXi (t) = Xi (t) bi (X (t))dt + dk=1 sik (X (t))dWk (t) . (1) Let H denote the collection of all trading strategies. For each π ∈ H and initial wealth y ≥ 0, the associated wealth process will be denoted by Y y ,π (·).

The Problem

In this paper, we want to determine and characterize The Problem V (T , x, p) = inf{y > 0|∃π ∈ H s.t.P{Y y ,π (T ) ≥ g (X (T ))} ≥ p} , where g : (0, ∞)d 7→ R+ is a measurable function.

Related Work In the case where p = 1 and g (x) = x1 + · · · + xd , V (T , x, 1) = inf{y > 0|∃π ∈ H s.t.Y y ,π (T ) ≥ g (X (T )) a.s.}. In Fernholz and Karatzas (2010), a PDE characterization for ˜ (T , x, 1) := V (T , x, 1)/g (x) was derived when V (T , x, 1) is V assumed to be smooth. In Bouchard, Elie and Touzi (2009), a PDE characterization of V (t, x, p) was derived. Assumptions: rather strong, e.g. existence of a unique strong solution of (1); main tool used: Geometric dynamic programming principle.

Under the No-Arbitrage condition, they recovered the solution of quantile hedging problem proposed in Follmer and Leukert (1999). Yu-Jui Huang

In our paper, we will also have a PDE characterization for V (t, x, p), but We only assume the existence of a weak solution of (1) that is unique in distribution; We admit arbitrage in our model.

Consequences of Assumptions We denote by F the augmentation of the natural filtration of X (·). Thanks to Assumption 2.1, every local martingale of F has the martingale representation property with respect to W (·) (adapted to F). the solution of (1) takes values in the positive orthant the exponential local martingale  Z t  Z 1 t Z (t) := exp − θ(X (s))0 dW (s) − |θ(X (s))|2 ds , 2 0 0 (3) the so-called deflator is well defined. We do not exclude the possibility that Z (·) is a strict local martingale.

Propositions 3.1 & 3.3 Proposition 3.1 Fix (x, p) ∈ (0, ∞)d × [0, 1]. There exists A ∈ FT satisfying P(A) = p and (6). As a result, we have V (T , x, p) = E[Z (T )g (X (T ))1A ]. Let M := {ϕ : Ω → [0, 1] is FT measurable s.t. E[ϕ] ≥ p}. Using Proposition 3.1, we give an alternative representation of V Proposition 3.3 V (T , x, p) = inf ϕ∈M E[Z (T )g (X (T ))ϕ].

Characterize U further We characterize U as the smallest nonnegative l.s.c. viscosity supersolution to (19) with the boundary condition (20) among a particular set of functions. Proposition 4.7 Suppose Assumption 4.1 holds. Let u : [0, T ] × (0, ∞)d × [0, 1] 7→ [0, ∞) be such that u(t, x, 0) = 0, u(t, x, p) is convex in p, the Legendre transform of u w.r.t. p is continuous on [0, T ] × (0, ∞)d × (0, ∞). Then, if u is a lower semicontinuous viscosity supersolution to (19) on (0, T ) × (0, ∞)d × (0, 1) with the boundary condition (20), then u ≥ U. Yu-Jui Huang
