Utility is given by where a complete market exists for xm, and e is a non-hedgeable background risk. In this case, the amount the investor can consume depends not only on the risky payoff, but also on the background risk. The background risk e is independent from xm. , First, we write 18 Gollier and Pratt (1990) provide a good summary of the literature on background risk and its effect on risk taking. The focus of their paper is on adverse (unfair) risks, where E[e] ≤ 0. FSS (1998) follow Kimball (1993) and set E [e] = 0.
We have emphasised here the impact of non-hedgeable background risks on the prudence of the representative investor and hence on the shape of the pricing kernel. We will see in Chapters 3 and 4, the shape and in particular the decline in the elasticity of the pricing kernel is critical for the pricing of contingent claims. 2 we showed the effects of a positive, declining precautionary premium, θ, on the pricing kernel. The proofs that θ has these properties in the case of HARA utility functions are shown 36 Risk Aversion, Background Risk, and the Pricing Kernel in Franke et al.
Risk aversion implies that the pricing kernel is a declining function of aggregate wealth, φ′(w) = φ′(xm) < 0, as shown in the analysis of the representative investor's utility. However, an individual's attitude to market risk can be affected by background risk. Generally, the effect of background risk is to increase the risk aversion of the investor towards marketable risks. This increases the slope of the pricing kernel. However, as we will show, it also changes the shape of the pricing kernel.
