Optimal investment and consumption in a Black–Scholes market with Lévy-driven stochastic coefficients
In this paper, we investigate an optimal investment and consumption problem for an investor who trades in a Black–Scholes financial market with stochastic coefficients driven by a non-Gaussian Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process. We assume that an agent makes investment and consumption decisions based on a power utility function. By applying the usual separation method in the variables, we are faced with the problem of solving a nonlinear (semilinear) first-order partial integro-differential equation. A candidate solution is derived via the Feynman–Kac representation. By using the properties of an operator defined in a suitable function space, we prove uniqueness and smoothness of the solution. Optimality is verified by applying a classical verification theorem.
