No 595:
Towards a General Theory of Good Deal Bounds

Tomas Björk () and Irina Slinko ()

Abstract: We consider an incomplete market in the form of a multidimensional Markovian factor model, driven by a general marked point process (representing discrete jump events) as well as by a standard multidimensional Wiener process. Within this framework we study arbitrage free good deal pricing bounds for derivative assets along the lines of Cochrane and Saa-Requejo, extending the CSR results to the point process case.

As a concrete application we present numerical results for the classic Merton jump-diffusion model. As a by product of the general theory we also extend the Hansen-Jagannathan bounds for the Sharpe Ratio to the point process setting.
