# Arbitrage and Hedging in Model-Independent Markets with Frictions

@article{Burzoni2016ArbitrageAH, title={Arbitrage and Hedging in Model-Independent Markets with Frictions}, author={Matteo Burzoni}, journal={SIAM J. Financial Math.}, year={2016}, volume={7}, pages={812-844} }

We provide a Fundamental Theorem of Asset Pricing and a Superhedging Theorem for a model independent discrete time financial market with proportional transaction costs. We consider a probability-free version of the Robust No Arbitrage condition introduced in Schachermayer ['04] and show that this is equivalent to the existence of Consistent Price Systems. Moreover, we prove that the superhedging price for a claim g coincides with the frictionless superhedging price of g for a suitable process… Expand

Robust Martingale Selection Problem and its Connections to the No‐Arbitrage Theory

- Mathematics, Economics

- 2019

We analyze the martingale selection problem of Rokhlin (2006) in a pointwise (robust) setting. We derive conditions for solvability of this problem and show how it is related to the classical… Expand

On the quasi-sure superhedging duality with frictions

We prove the superhedging duality for a discrete-time financial market with proportional transaction costs under model uncertainty. Frictions are modelled through solvency cones as in the original… Expand

Duality Formulas for Robust Pricing and Hedging in Discrete Time

This paper derives robust super- and subhedging dualities for contingent claims that can depend on several underlying assets based on representation results for increasing convex functionals and yields a robust version of the fundamental theorem of asset pricing. Expand

Superreplication with Proportional Transaction Cost Under Model Uncertainty

This work uses a randomization technique together with the minimax theorem to convert the initial problem to a frictionless problem set on an enlarged space and recovers the duality results that are well known in the classical dominated context. Expand

Utility Maximization with Proportional Transaction Costs Under Model Uncertainty

By suggesting a different dynamic programming argument than in \cite{bartl2016exponential}, this work is able to prove the existence of the optimal strategy and the convex duality theorem in the authors' context with transaction costs. Expand

Efficient hedging under ambiguity in continuous time

It is well known that the minimal superhedging price of a contingent claim is too high for practical use. In a continuous-time model uncertainty framework, we consider a relaxed hedging criterion… Expand
