Finance and Financial Management
This paper provides a general framework for analyzing optimal dynamic asset allocation problems in economies with infrequent events and where the investment opportunities are stochastic and predictable. Analytical solutions are obtained, with which I do a thorough comparative study of the impacts of jumps on the dynamic decision. I also calibrate the model to the U.S. equity market and assess the quantitative impacts of jumps under a dynamic environment. I find that jump risk not only makes the investor's allocation more conservative overall but also makes her dynamic portfolio rebalancing less dramatic over time.
