Portfolio Dynamics

Show Summary Details


This chapter derives the dynamics of (the value of) a so-called self-financing portfolio; the price dynamics of various assets (e.g. stocks, bonds, financial derivatives) is considered as a given. A model is first studied in discrete time. The length of time is then tended to zero to obtain the continuous time analogs. A practice exercise is included.

Keywords: self-financing portfolio; portfolio dynamics; price dynamics; discrete time; continuous time; dividends
