Mean Variance Hedging in a General Jump Model
We consider the mean-variance hedging of a contingent claim H when the discounted price process S is an [image omitted]-valued quasi-left continuous semimartingale with bounded jumps. We relate the variance-optimal martingale measure (VOMM) to a backward semimartingale equation (BSE) and show that the VOMM is equivalent to the original measure P if and only if the BSE has a solution. For a general contingent claim, we derive an explicit solution of the optimal strategy and the optimal cost of the mean-variance hedging by means of another BSE and an appropriate predictable process δ
