Summary: We describe some stochastic control problems in financial engineering arising from the need to find investment strategies to optimize some goal. Typically, these problems are characterized by nonlinear Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman partial differential equations, and often they can be reduced to linear PDEs with the Legendre transform of convex duality. One situation where this cannot be achieved is in a market with stochastic volatility. In this case, we discuss an approximation using asymptotic analysis in the limit of fast mean-reversion of the process driving volatility. Simulations illustrate that marginal improvement can be achieved with this approach even when volatility is not fluctuating that rapidly.
