Cointegration in continuous time for factor models

We develop cointegration for multivariate continuous-time stochastic processes, both in finite and infinite dimension. Our definition and analysis are based on factor processes and operators mapping to the space of prices and cointegration. The …


Borrowing constraints, effective flexibility in labor supply, and portfolio selection

We study optimal job switching and consumption/investment policies of an economic agent under the borrowing constraints against future labor income in a continuous and infinite time horizon. The agent’s preference is given by the Cobb–Douglas …


Capital asset market equilibrium with liquidity risk, portfolio constraints, and asset price bubbles

This paper derives an equilibrium asset pricing model with endogenous liquidity risk, portfolio constraints, and asset price bubbles. Liquidity risk is modeled as a stochastic quantity impact on the price from trading, where the size of the impact …


Optimal credit investment and risk control for an insurer with regime-switching

This paper studies an optimal investment and risk control problem for an insurer with default contagion and regime-switching. The insurer in our model allocates his/her wealth across multi-name defaultable stocks and a riskless bond under …


The financial market: not as big as you think

In a general multiperiod financial market, we show that the market trading prices at intermediate dates of some securities with simple specifications, either compound call option or portfolios of index options, reveal sufficient information from …

Über diese Zeitschrift

In the last twenty years mathematical finance has developed independently from economic theory, and largely as a branch of probability theory and stochastic analysis. This has led to important developments e.g. in asset pricing theory, and interest-rate modeling.

This direction of research however can be viewed as somewhat removed from real-world considerations and increasingly many academics in the field agree over the necessity of returning to foundational economic issues.

Mainstream finance on the other hand has often considered interesting economic problems, but finance journals typically pay less attention to the high-level quantitative approach. When quantitative methods useful to economists are developed by mathematicians and published in mathematical journals, they often remain unknown and confined to a very specific readership. More generally, there is a need for bridges between these disciplines.

The aim of this new journal is to reconcile these two approaches and to provide the bridging links between mathematics, economics and finance. Typical areas of interest include foundational issues in asset pricing, financial markets equilibrium, insurance models, portfolio management, quantitative risk management, intertemporal economics, uncertainty and information in finance models.

The first Editor-in-Chief was Elyès Jouini (2007), succeeded by Ivar Ekeland (2011) and from 2014, by Ulrich Horst and Frank Riedel jointly.

Blockchain-Effekte im Banking und im Wealth Management

Es steht fest, dass Blockchain-Technologie die Welt verändern wird. Weit weniger klar ist, wie genau dies passiert. Ein englischsprachiges Whitepaper des Fintech-Unternehmens Avaloq untersucht, welche Einsatzszenarien es im Banking und in der Vermögensverwaltung geben könnte – „Blockchain: Plausibility within Banking and Wealth Management“. Einige dieser plausiblen Einsatzszenarien haben sogar das Potenzial für eine massive Disruption. Ein bereits existierendes Beispiel liefert der Initial Coin Offering-Markt: ICO statt IPO.
