# Relative wealth concerns with partial information and heterogeneous priors

@article{Deng2020RelativeWC, title={Relative wealth concerns with partial information and heterogeneous priors}, author={Chao Deng and Xizhi Su and Chao Zhou}, journal={arXiv: Portfolio Management}, year={2020} }

We establish a Nash equilibrium in a market with $ N $ agents with the performance criteria of relative wealth level when the market return is unobservable. Each investor has a random prior belief on the return rate of the risky asset. The investors can be heterogeneous in both the mean and variance of the prior. By a separation result and a martingale argument, we show that the optimal investment strategy under a stochastic return rate model can be characterized by a fully-coupled linear FBSDE… Expand

This work considers the problem of maximizing terminal utility in a model where asset prices are driven by Wiener processes, but where the various rates of returns are allowed to be arbitrary semimartingales and manages to provide a surprisingly explicit representation of the optimal terminal wealth as well as the optimal portfolio strategy.
