The proportion is the probability that the option will be exercised. Although the pricing relationship is intuitive, the model unfortunately, relies heavily on the use of quadratic utility as well as the normality assumption. Also note that, in order to price the option, we need to know the probability of exercise. In the models below this information is not required. 2), we see the importance of the asset-specific pricing kernel ψ(xj) in the valuation of contingent claims. We now assume, more conventionally, that the cash flow xj = xj,t+T is lognormally distributed.

The latter can be treated as a background risk. , 1998); and the herd-like behaviour and seeming underperformance of portfolio managers. 1 Consumption Optimisation Under Background Risk We now analyse the effect of background risk on the pricing kernel, by looking at the portfolio demand of a representative investor. Background risk refers to a second, non-hedgable, zero-mean, independent risk to which the investor is subject. We show here that an investor with a constant relative risk averse (power) utility function, faced with background risk, acts towards the market risk like an investor without background risk, but with declining relative risk averse utility.

These options are contingent claims whose payoffs depend upon the terminal cash flow xj of asset j that occurs at time t + T. We show that the value of the option depends upon the shape of the pricing kernel, and in particular on the shape of the assetspecific pricing kernel, ψ(xj). The analysis starts at a general level and then concentrates on an important special case, where the underlying cash flow is lognormal. We establish in this case that a risk-neutral valuation relationship (RNVR) exists between the option price and the price of the underlying asset if the asset-specific pricing kernel, ψ(xj), has the property of constant elasticity.
