Abstract
We consider the problem of representing claims for coherent risk measures.
For this purpose we introduce the concept of (weak and strong) timeconsistency with
respect to a portfolio of assets, generalizing the one defined in Delbaen [7].
In a similar way we extend the notion of mstability, by introducing weak and strong
versions. We then prove that the two concepts of m stability and timeconsistency
are still equivalent, thus giving necessary and sufficient conditions for a coherent risk
measure to be represented by a market with proportional transaction costs. We go on
to deduce that, under a separability assumption, any coherent risk measure is strongly
timeconsistent with respect to a suitably chosen countable portfolio, and show the
converse: that any market with proportional transaction costs is equivalent to a market
priced by a coherent risk measure, essentially establishing the equivalence of the two
concepts.
