Consistency between principal and agent with differing time horizons: Computing incentives under risk

Josef Schosser

European Journal of Operational Research, 2019, vol. 277, issue 3, 1113-1123

Abstract: In a parsimonious model, we analyze how to obtain consistent incentives when both principal and agent are risk-averse and when a setting prevails in which the agent may have a shorter time horizon than the principal. Intertemporal dependencies in risky cash flows are taken into account.
