No-arbitrage under a class of honest times

  title={No-arbitrage under a class of honest times},
  author={Anna Aksamit and Tahir Choulli and Jun Deng and Monique Jeanblanc},
  journal={Finance and Stochastics},
This paper quantifies the interplay between the no-arbitrage notion of no unbounded profit with bounded risk (NUPBR) and additional progressive information generated by a random time. This study complements the one of Aksamit et al. (Finance Stoch. 21:1103–1139, 2017) in which the authors have studied similar topics for the model stopped at the random time, while here we deal with the question of what happens after the random time. Given that the existing literature proves that NUPBR is always… Expand
No-arbitrage under additional information for thin semimartingale models
This paper completes the two studies undertaken in \cite{aksamit/choulli/deng/jeanblanc2} and \cite{aksamit/choulli/deng/jeanblanc3}, where the authors quantify the impact of a random time on theExpand
Explicit description of all deflators for markets under random horizon
This paper considers an initial market model, specified by its underlying assets $S$ and its flow of information $\mathbb F$, and an arbitrary random time $\tau$ which might not be an $\mathbbExpand
Deflators and log-optimal portfolios under random horizon: Explicit description and optimization
This paper considers an initial market model, specified by its underlying assets $S$ and its flow of information $\mathbb F$, and an arbitrary random time $\tau$ which is not an $\mathbb F$-stoppingExpand
The insider problem in the trinomial model: a discrete-time jump process approach
We study insider trading in a trinomial market we represent in an alternative financial ternary model. We obtain the following results: (i) we connect the drift of information to Malliavin calculus,Expand
Thin times and random times’ decomposition
The paper studies thin times which are random times whose graph is contained in a countable union of the graphs of stopping times with respect to a reference filtration F. We show that a genericExpand
No arbitrage and multiplicative special semimartingales
Consider a financial market with nonnegative semimartingales which does not need to have a numéraire. We are interested in the absence of arbitrage in the sense that no self-financing portfolio givesExpand
Log-optimal portfolio without NFLVR: existence, complete characterization, and duality
This paper addresses the log-optimal portfolio for a general semimartingale model. The most advanced literature on the topic elaborates existence and characterization of this portfolio underExpand
Log-optimal portfolio and num\'eraire portfolio under random horizon
This paper considers an initial market model, specified by the pair $(S,\mathbb F)$ where $S$ is its discounted assets' price process and $\mathbb F$ its flow of information, and an arbitrary randomExpand
Invariance times
On a probability space (Ω,A,Q) we consider two filtrations F ⊆ G and a G stopping time θ such that the G predictable processes coincide with F predictable processes on (0, θ]. In this setup it isExpand
The paper gathers together ideas related to thin random time, i.e., random time whose graph is contained in a thin set. The concept naturally completes the studies of random times and progressiveExpand


Non-Arbitrage up to Random Horizon for Semimartingale Models ∗
This paper addresses the question of how an arbitrage-free semimartingale model is affected when stopped at a random horizon. We focus on No-Unbounded-Profit-with-Bounded-Risk (called NUPBRExpand
No-arbitrage up to random horizon for quasi-left-continuous models
The impact of stopping the price process at an arbitrary random time on the condition of no unbounded profit with bounded risk (called NUPBR), also known in the literature as no arbitrage of the first kind, is studied. Expand
On arbitrages arising with honest times
It is explicitly shown that no kind of arbitrage profit can ever be realised strictly before τ, whereas classical arbitrage opportunities can be realised exactly at τ as well as after τ. Expand
Arbitrages in a Progressive Enlargement Setting
This paper completes the analysis of Choulli et al. Non-Arbitrage up to Random Horizons and after Honest Times for Semimartingale Models and contains two principal contributions. The firstExpand
How non-arbitrage, viability and numéraire portfolio are related
This paper proposes two approaches that quantify the exact relationship among viability, absence of arbitrage, and/or existence of the numéraire portfolio under minimal assumptions and for generalExpand
This thesis develops three major essays on Arbitrage Theory, Market’s Viability and Informational Markets. The first essay (Chapter 3) elaborates the exact connections among theExpand
A note on the condition of no unbounded profit with bounded risk
It is proved, in a general finite-dimensional semimartingale setting, that the no unbounded profit with bounded risk (NUPBR) condition is equivalent to the existence of a strict sigma-martingale density. Expand
Random times at which insiders can have free lunches
We consider models of time continuous financial markets with a regular trader and an insider who are able to invest into one risky asset. The insider's additional knowledge consists in his ability toExpand
Minimal Hellinger martingale measures of order q
This paper shows the existence of the MHM measure of order q and describes it explicitly in terms of pointwise equations in ℝd and proves that, for an agent to be indifferent with respect to the liquidation time of her assets, she is forced to consider a habit formation utility function instead of the original utility.

Study of a Filtration Expanded to Include an Honest Time
This paper presents a martingale approach to work on the decomposition of a process into its 'past ' and 'future' relative to an honest random time. (See Millar 1-11], for a survey of the MarkovianExpand
