'Financial equilibrium with asymmetric information and random horizon'

Detail Summary
Date 19 October 2018
Time 13:00 - 14:00
Location Roeterseilandcampus - gebouw E


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.
