Primbs, MS&E 345 3 Hedging Hedging is about the reduction of risk. Simply put, a portfolio is hedged against a certain risk if the portfolio value is not sensitive to that risk. We will consider dynamic hedging in which a portfolio is dynamically traded in order to reduce risk.

Primbs, MS&E 345 4 The Basic Idea c Given a risky portfolio or asset: Form a new portfolio by purchasing or selling other assets in the market: n n S S c P α + + + = ... 1 1 Choose the amounts of the other assets, 1 ...α 2 , in order to “eliminate the risk” in the portfolio. Ito’s lemma will tell us how much risk the portfolio has over the next instantaneous dt .
