# Robust hedging with proportional transaction costs

@article{Dolinsky2014RobustHW, title={Robust hedging with proportional transaction costs}, author={Yan Dolinsky and Halil Mete Soner}, journal={Finance and Stochastics}, year={2014}, volume={18}, pages={327-347} }

A duality for robust hedging with proportional transaction costs of path-dependent European options is obtained in a discrete-time financial market with one risky asset. The investor’s portfolio consists of a dynamically traded stock and a static position in vanilla options, which can be exercised at maturity. Trading of both options and stock is subject to proportional transaction costs. The main theorem is a duality between hedging and a Monge–Kantorovich-type optimization problem. In this… Expand

Model-independent superhedging under portfolio constraints

- Mathematics, Economics

A model-independent version of the fundamental theorem of asset pricing is derived, which admits a natural connection to convex risk measures, and the notion “finite optimal arbitrage profit”, weaker than no-arbitrage, is introduced. Expand

Robust pricing–hedging dualities in continuous time

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- Finance Stochastics
- 2018

A robust approach to pricing and hedging in mathematical finance is pursued and a general pricing–hedging duality result is obtained: the infimum over superhedging prices of an exotic option with payoff G$G$ is equal to the supremum of expectations of expectations under calibrated martingale measures.

Robust pricing and hedging of double no-touch options

This work establishes model-independent bounds on the price of double no-touch options based on the prices of more liquidly traded options (call and digital call options) and discusses two natural extensions of the notion of arbitrage, weak arbitrage and weak free lunch with vanishing risk which are needed to establish equivalence between the lack of Arbitrage and the existence of a market model.
