Utility maximization in models with conditionally independent increments

By Jan Kallsen and Johannes Muhle-Karbe

Abstract

We consider the problem of maximizing expected utility from terminal wealth in models with stochastic factors. Using martingale methods and a conditioning argument, we determine the optimal strategy for power utility under the assumption that the increments of the asset price are independent conditionally on the factor process.
