Investors are assumed to maximize their expected utilities defined on financial and environmental asset values.

In particular, our results suggest how to introduce derivative assets written on the environmental asset.

Ebook Economic Capital and Optimal Investment for Non - Life ...
There is an increasing concern about quantifying capital requirement for financial companies. Actually, the major part of insurance regulation advance aims to provide a clear guideline for insurers to deal with this issue (see, Eling et al. (2007, 2008)).
