Extending dynamic convex risk measures from discrete time to continuous time: A convergence approach

Abstract

We present an approach for the transition from convex risk measures in a certain discrete time setting to their counterparts in continuous time. The aim of this paper is to show that a large class of convex risk measures in continuous time can be obtained as limits of discrete time-consistent convex risk measures. The discrete time risk measures are constructed from properly rescaled ([`]tilted') one-period convex risk measures, using a d-dimensional random walk converging to a Brownian motion. Under suitable conditions (covering many standard one-period risk measures) we obtain convergence of the discrete risk measures to the solution of a BSDE, defining a convex risk measure in continuous time, whose driver can then be viewed as the continuous time analogue of the discrete [`]driver' characterizing the one-period risk. We derive the limiting drivers for the semi-deviation risk measure, Value at Risk, Average Value at Risk, and the Gini risk measure in closed form.
