In this paper, we explore optimal liquidation in a market populated by a number of heterogeneous market makers that have limited inventory-carrying and risk-bearing capacity. We derive a reduced form model for the dynamics of their aggregated inventory considering a proper scaling limit. The resulting price impact profile is shown to depend on the characteristics and relative importance of their inventories. The model is flexible enough to reproduce the empirically documented power law behavior of the price impact function. For any choice of the market makers' characteristics, optimal execution within this modeling approach can be recast as a linear-quadratic stochastic control problem. The value function and the associated optimal trading rate can be obtained semi-explicitly subject to solving a differential matrix Riccati equation. Numerical simulations are conducted to illustrate the performance of the resulting optimal liquidation strategy in relation to standard benchmarks. Remarkably, they show that the increase in performance is determined by a substantial reduction of higher order moment risk.

Abstract

In this paper, we explore optimal liquidation in a market populated by a number of heterogeneous market makers that have limited inventory-carrying and risk-bearing capacity. We derive a reduced form model for the dynamics of their aggregated inventory considering a proper scaling limit. The resulting price impact profile is shown to depend on the characteristics and relative importance of their inventories. The model is flexible enough to reproduce the empirically documented power law behavior of the price impact function. For any choice of the market makers' characteristics, optimal execution within this modeling approach can be recast as a linear-quadratic stochastic control problem. The value function and the associated optimal trading rate can be obtained semi-explicitly subject to solving a differential matrix Riccati equation. Numerical simulations are conducted to illustrate the performance of the resulting optimal liquidation strategy in relation to standard benchmarks. Remarkably, they show that the increase in performance is determined by a substantial reduction of higher order moment risk.
