Special Issue “Recent Developments of Forward Performance Processes”

It has been more than one decade since the concept of forward performance processes was introduced by M. Musiela and T. Zariphopoulou. This new performance criterion complements the classical expected utility theory by incorporating many"forward in nature" features such as dynamic updating of risk preferences, rolling horizons and “real-time” learning.

A number of techniques have been introduced to construct and characterize forward performance criteria including harmonic analysis, stochastic flows, stochastic partial differential equations, ergodic control and functional equations.

This special issue aims to provide a platform to disseminate recent developments in forward performance processes both in the mathematical theory and their applications infinance, insurance and pension fund management.
