Asset allocation with distorted beliefs and transaction costs

In this paper we study the problem of the optimal portfolio selection with transaction costs for a decision-maker who is faced with Knightian uncertainty. The decision-maker's portfolio consists of one risky and one risk-free asset, and we assume that the transaction costs are proportional to the traded volume of the risky asset. The attitude to uncertainty is modeled by the Choquet expected utility. We derive optimal strategies and bounds of the no-transaction region for both optimistic and pessimistic decision-makers. The no-transaction region of a pessimistic investor is narrower and its bounds lie closer to the origin than that of an optimistic trader. Moreover, under the Choquet expected utility the structure of the no-transaction region is not necessarily a closed interval as it is under the standard expected utility model.
