We investigate dynamic risk measures which describe the riskiness of financial positions taken by investors. We deal with dynamic risk measures which are modelled by g-expectations. We study properties of dynamic risk measures and we show that properties of dynamic risk measures are determined by the generator of the BSDE defining the g-expectation and the risk measure. We discuss methods for choosing the generator of a g-expectation. We also solve a problem of optimal risk sharing between two parties and we find the optimal derivative for the risk transfer. Properties of the prices (risk measures) derived in previous chapters are investigated.
