An entropic approach to analyze investor utility involving a financial structured product

Sukanto Bhattacharya, Kuldeep Kumar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


We propose an entropic model of extrinsic utility arising out of the element of choice regarding portfolio re-balancing strategies available to an individual investor who has chosen to invest in a financial structured product with a terminal payoff same as that from a rainbow option. We also propose a generalization of our posited framework by incorporating a fuzzy measure of probabilistic uncertainty concerning the nature of the structured financial product.
