    We consider a multivariate financial market with transaction costs as in Kabanov. We study the problem of finding the minimal initial capital needed to hedge, without risk, European-type contingent claims. We prove that the value of this stochastic control problem is given by the cost of the cheapest buy-and-hold strategy. This is an extension of the already known result in the one-dimensional case. An important feature of our analysis is that we do not make use of the dual formulation of the problem, as in the previous literature.
