Here we introduce the following definition. 4 We say that the asset space ¯ 1 has a K-factor structure if dim(D) = K < ∞. This means that if the well-diversified portfolio space D has dimension K, then D is spanned by only K orthonormal basis elements {f1 , · · · , fK } satisfying cov(fi , fj ) = 0 if i = j and V (fi ) = 1, i, j = 1, · · · , K. 3. 17) where factor loadings βi,k = cov(zi , fk ) and cov( i , fk ) = 0 for k = 1, · · · K. 18) − E[ i ]. 19) with E[fk ] = 0 and E[ i ] = 0. Let n = ( 1 , · · · , n ) and the second-moment matrix S n = E[ n ( n )T ] of n .

3) There may exist some common portfolios in X1 and X2 . Whether or not an arbitrage opportunity exists in the enlarged space depends on how m1 and m2 price these common portfolios. A satisfactory solution of the compounding problem is relevant. For, it will enable us to construct a complex pricing functional from a series of simpler pricing functionals. Further, in practice we do meet the compounding problem frequently. S. K. stocks, say XUK . Suppose that we already have correctly pricing domestic SDFs, mUS and mUK say, which are functionals of the respective domestic economic variables.

4), D has dimension K and is spanned by f1 , · · · , fK . We have xπ = b1 f1 + · · · + bK fk . Define pricing functional fk∗ by ∀x ∈ ¯ 1 , fk∗ (x) = E[fk x]. ) Thereand D∗ is spanned by f1∗ , · · · , fK fore pricing functional subspace F has a K-factor structure D∗ . e. there is a riskless limit portfolio). Also treatment applies to ¯ 1 = Ψ the above argument applies to an SDF space. 1), we can regard asset space ¯ 1 as a correctly pricing SDF space for the dual space ¯ ∗1 , and then apply the necessary condition to the ‘virtual SDF pricing’ space ¯ 1 .
