# Kelly Criterion: From a Simple Random Walk to Lévy Processes

@article{Lototsky2020KellyCF, title={Kelly Criterion: From a Simple Random Walk to L{\'e}vy Processes}, author={Sergey V. Lototsky and Austin Pollok}, journal={SIAM J. Financial Math.}, year={2020}, volume={12}, pages={342-368} }

The original Kelly criterion provides a strategy to maximize the long-term growth of winnings in a sequence of simple Bernoulli bets with an edge, that is, when the expected return on each bet is positive. The objective of this work is to consider more general models of returns and the continuous time, or high frequency, limits of those models.
