Optimal risk-exposure management with costly refinancing opportunities


Barth, Andrea; Moreno, Santiago (2013). Optimal risk-exposure management with costly refinancing opportunities. NCCR FINRISK Working Paper Series 858, University of Zurich.

Abstract

In this paper the decisions of a firm's manager, in terms of exposure to a profitable but risky technology, distribution of dividends and (costly) re-injection of cash to ward off bankruptcy are studied. The analysis of the manager's optimal choices is done via a value function whose state variable is the firm's current level of reserves. Contingent on whether proportional or fixed costs of reinvestment are considered, singular stochastic control or stochastic impulse control techniques are used.
