Strategic Asset Allocation in a Continuous Time VAR Model

John Campbell (), George Chacko, Jorge Rodriguez and Luis Viceira ()

No 4160, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: This Paper derives an approximate solution to a continuous-time intertemporal portfolio and consumption choice problem. The problem is the continuous-time equivalent of the discrete-time problem studied by Campbell and Viceira (1999), in which the expected excess return on a risky asset follows an AR(1) process, while the riskless interest rate is constant. The Paper also shows how to obtain continuous-time parameters that are consistent with discrete-time econometric estimates. The continuous-time solution is the limit of that of Campbell and Viceira and has the property that conservative long-term investors have a large positive intertemporal hedging demand for stocks.
