Abstract

We consider a stochastic model of investment on an asset in a stock market for a prudent investor. she decides to buy permanent goods with a fraction α of the maximum amount of money owned in her life in order that her economic level never decreases. The optimal strategy is obtained by maximizing the exponential growth rate for a fixed α. We derive analytical expressions for the typical exponential growth rate of the capital and its fluctuations by solving an one-dimensional random walk with drift.
