A Benchmark Approach to Filtering in Finance

Contents:

Author Info

Abstract

The paper proposes the use of the growth optimal portfolio for the construction of financial market models with unobserved factors that have to be filtered. This benchmark approach avoids any measure transformation for the pricing of derivatives. The suggested framework allows to measure the reduction of the variance of derivative prices for increasing degrees of available information.
