Homework Help: Utility function von Neumann Morgenstern

  1. May 4, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have a financial intermediation model with delegated monitoring to a venture capitalist. At the moment all participants are risk neutral and i want to introduce risk aversion to the model. Therefore i need a utility function under the von neumann morgenstern criteria, ie. concavity and continous
    v= future project realisation
    B= private benefits
    ph=probability for high effort
    pl=probability for low effort

    2. Relevant equations
    incentive constraint of the entrepreneur : ph times v >= pl times v + B

    3. The attempt at a solution
    For risk aversion i need to introduce here utility function in a specific form, but i am not sure which to take
