On the structure of general mean-variance hedging strategies

Černý, A. & Kallsen, J. (2007). On the structure of general mean-variance hedging strategies. Annals of Probability, 35(4), pp. 1479-1531. doi: 10.1214/009117906000000872


We provide a new characterization of mean-variance hedging strategies in a general semimartingale market. The key point is the introduction of a new probability measure P⋆ which turns the dynamic asset allocation problem into a myopic one. The minimal martingale measure relative to P⋆ coincides with the variance-optimal martingale measure relative to the original probability measure P.
