We consider the problem of maximization of expected utility from terminal wealth for log and power utility functions in a market model that leads to purely discontinuous processes. We study this problem as a stochastic control problem both under complete as well as incomplete information. Our contribution consists in showing that the optimal strategy can be obtained by solving a system of equations that in some cases is linear and that a certainty equivalence property holds not only for log… CONTINUE READING
