Efficient hedging for a complete jump-diffusion model
This paper is devoted to the problem of hedging contingent claims in the framework of a complete two-factor jump-diffusion model. In this context, it is well understood that every contingent claim can be hedged perfectly if one invests the unique arbitrage-free price. Based on the results of H. Föllmer and P. Leukert [ 5] in a general semimartingale setting, we determine the unique hedging strategies which minimize a suitably defined shortfall risk under a given cost constraint. We derive explicit formulas for this so-called efficient or quantile hedging strategy for a European call option. We then compare the performance of the optimal strategy for different degrees of the investor's risk-aversion.
