Abstract: The paper deals with the problem of pricing an equity-linked insurance contract based on stock prices. The stock prices are supposed to follow a stochastic exponent model with respect to a given Gaussian martingale. The model gives a possibility to obtain unified formulas for ``mean-variance'' hedging and the corresponding premium for both natural cases: Black-Scholes and Gaussian discrete time models.
