Franke et al. (1998) give several examples. Consider, for example, the case of a multinational company with foreign exchange and interest rate risks which are hedgeable ‘market’ risks and operational risk which is not hedgeable. Here the operational risks are background risks which affect the demand for foreign exchange and interest rate hedging. Also, consider the case of a fund manager who is judged on his fund's absolute and relative performance. The portfolio risk is hedgeable, but his performance relative to his peers is not.

This is the two curves intersect at ψ(xj) = 1. We now proceed to evaluate this shift factor. FIG. 1. 4 The Forward Price of the Underlying Asset under Lognormality We now analyse the forward price of the underlying asset under the same assumptions. 9) does not include the pricing kernel parameter β or the mean of the asset μx. This is an example of what Heston (1993) calls a missing parameters valuation relationship. One parameter of the PDF of the underlying asset (μx) and one parameter of the pricing kernel OPTION PRICING IN A SINGLE-PERIOD MODEL 47 (β) are missing from the valuation formula.

Here we assume that the asset-specific pricing kernel is a power function of xj: where α > 0 and β < 0 are constants. First note that if this is the case, the asset-specific pricing kernel has constant elasticity. The 20 Given that xj is lognormal, the contant elasticity property of the asset-specific pricing kernel means that ψ(xj) will also be lognormal.
