Optimal static-dynamic hedges for exotic options under convex risk measures

Registered author(s):

    We study the problem of optimally hedging exotic derivatives positions using a combination of dynamic trading strategies in underlying stocks and static positions in vanilla options when the performance is quantified by a convex risk measure. We establish conditions for the existence of an optimal static position for general convex risk measures, and then analyze in detail the case of shortfall risk with a power loss function. Here we find conditions for uniqueness of the static hedge. We illustrate the computational challenge of computing the market-adjusted risk measure in a simple diffusion model for an option on a non-traded asset.
