Asymptotically Optimal Management of Heterogeneous Collectivised Investment Funds

  title={Asymptotically Optimal Management of Heterogeneous Collectivised Investment Funds},
  author={J. Armstrong and C. Buescu},
  journal={arXiv: Portfolio Management},
A collectivised fund is a proposed form of pension investment, in which all investors agree that any funds associated with deceased members should be split among survivors. For this to be a viable financial product, it is necessary to know how to manage the fund even when it is heterogeneous: that is when different investors have different preferences, wealth and mortality. There is no obvious way to define a single objective for a heterogeneous fund, so this is not an optimal control problem… Expand

Collectivised Post-Retirement Investment
We quantify the benefit of collectivised investment funds, in which the assets of members who die are shared among the survivors. For our model, with realistic parameter choices, an annuity orExpand


Collectivised Pension Investment with Homogeneous Epstein-Zin Preferences.
In a collectivised pension fund, investors agree that any money remaining in the fund when they die can be shared among the survivors. We compute analytically the optimal investment-consumptionExpand
Collectivised Pension Investment with Exponential Kihlstrom--Mirman Preferences
In a collectivised pension fund, investors agree that any money remaining in the fund when they die can be shared among the survivors. We give a numerical algorithm to compute the optimalExpand
Consumption and Portfolio Decisions When Expected Returns are Time Varying
This paper presents an approximate analytical solution to the optimal consumption and portfolio choice problem of an infinitely lived investor with Epstein-Zin-Weil utility who faces a constantExpand
Epstein-Zin Utility Maximization on Random Horizons
This paper solves the consumption-investment problem under Epstein-Zin preferences on a random horizon. In an incomplete market, we take the random horizon to be a stopping time adapted to the marketExpand

The empirically relevant utility specification introduces difficulties to the optimization problem due to the fact that the Epstein–Zin aggregator is neither Lipschitz nor jointly concave in all its variables. Expand
Lifetime Portfolio Selection under Uncertainty: The Continuous-Time Case
OST models of portfolio selection have M been one-period models. I examine the combined problem of optimal portfolio selection and consumption rules for an individual in a continuous-time modelExpand
Substitution, Risk Aversion, and the Temporal Behavior of Consumption and Asset Returns: A Theoretical Framework
This paper develops a class of recursive, but not necessarily expected utility, preferences over intertemporal consumption lotteries. An important feature of these general preferences is that theyExpand
The Levered Equity Risk Premium and Credit Spreads: A Unified Framework
We embed a structural model of credit risk inside a dynamic continuous-time consumption-based asset pricing model, which allows us to price equity and corporate debt in a unified framework. Our keyExpand
Risks for the Long Run: A Potential Resolution of Asset Pricing Puzzles
We model consumption and dividend growth rates as containing (1) a small longrun predictable component, and (2) fluctuating economic uncertainty (consumption volatility). These dynamics, for which weExpand
Mathematical Methods for Financial Markets
Stochastic processes of common use in mathematical finance are presented throughout this book, which consists of eleven chapters, interlacing on the one hand financial concepts and instruments, suchExpand
