This paper provides a theoretical analysis on the impacts of using a suboptimal information set for the estimation of the pricing kernel and, more in general, for the validity of the fundamental theorems of asset pricing. While inferring the risk-neutral measure from options data provides a naturally forward-looking estimate, extracting the real world measure from historical returns is only partially informative, thus suboptimal with respect to investors’ future beliefs. As a consequence of this disalignment, the two measures no longer share the same nullset, thus distorting the investors’ risk premium and the validity of the pricing measure. From a probabilistic viewpoint, the missing beliefs are totally unaccessible stopping times on the coarser filtration set, so that an absolutely continuous strict local martingale, once projected on it, becomes continuous with jumps. Some empirical examples complete the paper.
