Optimal VWAP execution under transient price impact

Abstract

We solve the problem of optimal liquidation with volume weighted average price (VWAP) benchmark when the market impact is linear and transient. Our setting is indeed more general as it considers the case when the trading interval is not necessarily coincident with the benchmark interval: Implementation Shortfall and Target Close execution are shown to be particular cases of our setting. We find explicit solutions in continuous and discrete time considering risk averse investors having a CARA utility function. Finally, we show that, contrary to what is observed for Implementation Shortfall, the optimal VWAP solution contains both buy and sell trades also when the decay kernel is convex.
