Generalized Recovery

Tuesday, December 5th – 6:00 PM

Dr. Lasse Heje Pedersen

Bank of China,

1045 6th Avenue,

New York, NY 10018

We characterize when physical probabilities, marginal utilities, and the discount rate can be recovered from observed state prices for several future time periods. We make no assumptions of the probability distribution, thus generalizing the time-homogeneous stationary model of Ross (2015). Recovery is feasible when the number of maturities with observable prices is higher than the number of states of the economy (or the number of parameters characterizing the pricing kernel). When recovery is feasible, our model is easy to implement, allowing a closed-form linearized solution. We implement our model empirically, testing the predictive power of the recovered expected return and other recovered statistics.

Complex mathematical modeling has always been part of the data-driven financial world, but today professional money managers are exploring a new range of techniques including machine learning, deep learning, and neural networks. They have also become familiar with the relatively new discipline of data science – really an intersection of software engineering, statistical modeling, research analytics, data mining and data warehousing.
