Abstract: The use of non-translation invariant risk measures within the equal risk pricing (ERP) methodology for the valuation of financial derivatives is investigated. The ability to move beyond the class of convex risk measures considered in several prior studies provides more flexibility within the pricing scheme. In particular, suitable choices for the risk measure embedded in the ERP framework such as the semi-mean-square-error (SMSE) are shown herein to alleviate the price inflation phenomenon observed under Tail Value-at-Risk based ERP as documented for instance in Carbonneau and Godin (2021b). The numerical implementation of non-translation invariant ERP is performed through deep reinforcement learning, where a slight modification is applied to the conventional deep hedging training algorithm (see Buehler et al., 2019) so as to enable obtaining a price through a single training run for the two neural networks associated with the respective long and short hedging strategies. The accuracy of the neural network training procedure is shown in simulation experiments not to be materially impacted by such modification of the training algorithm.
