English abstract:
Based on a general specification of the asset specific pricing kernel, we
develop a pricing model using an information process with stochastic volatility. We
derive analytical asset and option pricing formulas. The asset prices in this rational
expectations model exhibit crash-like, strong downward movements. The resulting
option pricing formula is consistent with the strong negative skewness and high levels
of kurtosis observed in empirical studies. Furthermore, we determine credit spreads
in a simple structural model.
