A Tractable Model for Indices Approximating the Growth Optimal Portfolio

Author

Abstract

The growth optimal portfolio (GOP) plays an important role in finance, where it serves as the numeraire portfolio, with respect to which contingent claims can be priced under the real world probability measure. This paper models the GOP using a time dependent constant elasticity of variance (TCEV) model. The TCEV model has high tractability for a range of derivative prices and ts well the dynamics of a global diversi ed world equity index. This is confirmed when pricing and hedging various derivatives using this index.
