An approximate approach to the exponential utility indifference valuation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We propose, in this paper, a new valuation method for contingent claims, which approximates to the exponential utility indifference valuation. In particular, we treat both ask and bid valuations. In the definition of the exponential utility indifference valuation, we require strong integrability for the underlying contingent claim. The new valuation in this paper succeeds in reducing it by using a kind of power functions instead of the exponential function. Furthermore, we shall investigate some basic properties and an asymptotic behavior of the new valuation.
