'Financial equilibrium with asymmetric information and random horizon'
|Date||19 October 2018|
|Time||13:00 - 14:00|
I will describe and solve a version of the Kyle model with random horizon first introduced in a specific case by Back and Baruch, where the trading horizon is given by an independent exponential random variable. I will discuss the characterisation of the equilibrium value function and the pricing rule in terms of the potential theory of one-dimensional diffusions. I will also discuss how the random horizon can be endogenised by including a manager optimally choosing the announcement date of the dividend.
