Abstract

This paper proposes the notion of optimal initial capital (OIC) induced by the optimized certainty equivalent (OCE), as discussed in Ben-Tal and Teboulle (1986) and Ben-Tal and Teboulle (2007). It also investigates the properties of the OIC with various types of utility functions. It is shown that the OIC can be a monetary utility function (negative value of risk measure) for future payoffs with the decision maker's concrete criteria in the background.
