Example text

In case of high inflation, it is expected that the policy holder will seek are-negotiation of his contract (and thereby increased costs for the insurer and the insured). The insurance firm, however, will obtain an unstable stream of payments (in real terms) and a very high cost of operation due to the required contracts renegotiations. Unless policy holders are extremely myopic, they would seek some added form of protection to compensate on the one hand for price levels changes and for the uncertainty in these prices on the other.

This means that one cannot duplicate the option with a portfolio or value it in a single manner. In this case, to define such probabilities and the corresponding portfolio we have to solve an optimization problem which corresponds to the portfolio parameters ( a + f3S ) subject to : ~ = {(a, f3)la(l + r) + f3x ~ g(x)}, \:Ix e[S H- S L] where g(x) is a convex function given for a call option by g(x) = max(O, x - K) . These situations will thus lead to portfolio optimization as we shall see subsequently which are also an important part of fmancial management.
