Market-consistent pricing with acceptable risk

We study the range of prices at which a rational agent should contemplate transacting a financial contract outside a given securities market. Trading is subject to nonproportional transaction costs

Fundamental theorem of asset pricing with acceptable risk in markets with frictions

We study the range of prices at which a rational agent should contemplate transacting a financial contract outside a given securities market. Trading is subject to nonproportional transaction costs

Refinements of Kusuoka representations on L∞

We study Kusuoka representations of law invariant coherent risk measures on the space of bounded random variables, which says that any law invariant coherent risk measure is the supremum of integrals

Similar Risks Have Similar Prices: A Useful and Exact Quantification

Law-Invariant Functionals that Collapse to the Mean: Beyond Convexity

We establish general “collapse to the mean” principles that provide conditions under which a law-invariant functional reduces to an expectation. In the convex setting, we retrieve and sharpen known

Automatic Fatou property of law-invariant risk measures

Risk measures beyond frictionless markets

We develop a general theory of risk measures that determines the optimal amount of capital to raise and invest in a portfolio of reference traded securities in order to meet a pre-specified

A Framework for Measures of Risk under Uncertainty

A risk analyst assesses potential financial losses based on multiple sources of information. Often, the assessment does not only depend on the specification of the loss random variable, but also

Risk sharing under heterogeneous beliefs without convexity

. We consider the problem of finding Pareto-optimal allocations of risk among finitely many agents. The associated individual risk measures are law invariant, but with respect to agent-dependent and



Law-invariant functionals beyond bounded positions

We establish general versions of a variety of results for quasiconvex, lower-semicontinuous, and law-invariant functionals. Our results extend well-known results from the literature to a large class

Fatou property, representations, and extensions of law-invariant risk measures on general Orlicz spaces

A variety of results for quasiconvex, law-invariant functionals defined on a general Orlicz space, which extend well-known results from the setting of bounded random variables and prove a version of the extension result by Filipović and Svindland by replacing norm-lower semicontinuity with the Fatou property.

Continuity properties of law-invariant (quasi-)convex risk functions on L∞

We study continuity properties of law-invariant (quasi-)convex functions $${f:L^\infty(\Omega, \mathcal{F}, \mathbb{P}) \to (-\infty,\infty]}$$ over a non-atomic probability space $${(\Omega,

Law invariant convex risk measures

As a generalization of a result by Kusuoka (2001), we provide the representation of law invariant convex risk measures. Very particular cases of law invariant coherent and convex risk measures are

Law Invariant Risk Measures Have the Fatou Property

S. Kusuoka [K 01, Theorem 4] gave an interesting dual characterizationof law invariant coherent risk measures, satisfying the Fatou property.The latter property was introduced by F. Delbaen [D 02].


We show that, if prices in a market are Choquet expectations, the existence of one frictionless asset may force the whole market to be frictionless. Any risky asset will cause this collapse if prices

Axiomatic characterization of insurance prices


This article introduces a class of distortion operators, ga(t) = D[44-(u) + a], where D is the standard normal cumulative distribution. For any loss (or asset) variable X with a probability
